Default Info on Enerjet/Centuri

I've been up since 2am local, it's 6:30am now. I'm tired, but I want to get this out before stumbling back to bed (it's my day off), and forgetting about it.

Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can find info on the history of Enerjet and Centuri? I need a break from the Mueller Report.


Dreaming of making the rockets I dreamed of as a kid (and then some).

"The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

You might also check Youtube. I believe there are a couple videos there featuring Lee Piester speaking about the history and background of his founding/formation of Centuri.

The November/December 2007 issue of LAUNCH Magazine featured a history of Enerjet.

I don't know if back-issues of LAUNCH are posted online.

Why don't you contact Lee Piester and ask him? He is accessible, and remains very engaged with the model rocketry community.

The next few issues of Sport Rocketry will have a number of articles relevant to Centuri history as well as a special item commemorating Apollo 11 and the Golden Age of model rocketry. The July/August should come out in late June.
