In Corolla, N.C., Roger Kreimeyer (kneeling on the right) and the
crew prepared to test the forward "accelerometer" on this Atlantic
Research Corp. rocket. The rocket's temperature was minus 30
degrees Fahrenheit. When the glue holding the bracket broke,
Kreimeyer used his saliva to freeze the accelerometer to the end of
the rocket, knowing the forward thrust would hold it once it moved.
The test was successful.
