I am going to photograph parts of rockets that are 3D printed.  I have been impressed so far and want to share.

They flew it and it did not appear to significantly add speed, but it appears to have added altitude.   More to come when the math is done.

The red color could be for visibility.

Could be.  In the Western USA, dark and bright colors in mix are especially useful for visibility.
