Explore futuristic planets with Galileo. Galileo can launch from most space exploration craft, and quickly gather information about distant planets, either by landing or orbiting. This can greatly reduce the risk of endangering an entire mission by unsafe conditions. Our model is based on what such a futuristic probe might look like. Galileo goes up like a rocket, flips over, and comes down like a helicopter! Features balsa nose cone, water-slide decals, and balsa and hardwood dowel fins.

Good for beginners
This is a great rocket for beginning builders and small fields. There is a little bit of a challenge in forming the body shroud from cardstock. This is a skill that will come in handy on the more advanced kits.
