Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough,
if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows
us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not
that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often
hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts
confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this
is done on the Internet.
The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat
sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to
ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the
sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new
spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into
cyber-aero-space for awhile.
The Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) is the world's
largest rocket contest, sponsored by the Aerospace Industries
Association (AIA) and the National Association of Rocketry (NAR).
It was created in the fall of 2002 as a one-time celebration of the
Centennial of Flight, but the enthusiasm about the event was so
great that AIA and NAR were asked to hold the contest annually.
