Deeply suspect "Rocky Mountain High" description follows ;-)

The Deep Atmosphere Research Craft is a one-of-a-kind scientific vessel developed by Space Corps Science Division to explore the gas giants of the outer solar system. Designated DARC-1, this multi-section crewed vessel is designed for entry and maneuver within the thick atmospheres of a Jupiter-type gaseous planet for study and exploration.

The lifting body characteristics of the DARC-1 are ideal for atmospheric flight in dense gases and for maintaining station under turbulent conditions. At the conclusion of its research mission, the DARC-1 initiates return by igniting and subsequently discarding its aft booster section to break atmosphere and set a trajectory for its journey home.

The DARC-1 first became operational in 2052 and successfully surveyed the atmospheres of Jupiter, Saturn, and several of their large moons before it was claimed in a tragic accident over Titan. The DARC-1 flying model rocket from Estes Industries is an expert build, being the most challenging build in the Space Corps fleet! Build each rocket in the Space Corps line to build up your skills or enjoy this model as a test of your building skills.
