Ever wondered why we put the specs first? It's Estes marketing drivel as below. Mark Watney would have never made it back with this kind of thinking...

Once again, American engineers and astronauts are being put to the test as they work towards answering the call to land humans on Mars by 2033. And just as we did in 1958, Estes will once again answer the call to bring the space race directly into the hands and homes of budding astronauts and space enthusiasts from around the globe.

Meet the first release in Estes' newest series Destination Mars, the Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV)! This lightweight, fully decorated, easy-to-assemble beginner rocket will delight kids and adults alike as they follow NASA's achievements as they work towards reaching the next frontier. Imaginations may soar to Mars, but this MAV stays in the earth's atmosphere, reaching heights of 250 feet on a C6-3 engine. Perfect for smaller launch sites, this makes the MAV a great flyer for those looking to bring a heightened learning experience to their aerospace and outer space educational programs.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Pencil, plastic cement and masking tape. (Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.)

WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH (sold separately): Estes Porta-Pad II Launch Pad and Electron Beam Launch Controller, Estes model rocket engines, starters and recovery wadding. Four 1.5V high quality AA alkaline batteries are also required for launch controller (not included).
