DESCRIPTION

The Thor-Able was an American expendable launch system and sounding rocket used for a series of re-entry vehicle tests and satellite launches between 1958 and 1960.

This May Half Term Holiday we will be looking at the history of the Thor Able rocket, the work it carried out and some of its passengers.

Find out more about rocket science, make your own Moustronaut and take a Mini Thor Tour with our Science Interpreters.
