G. Harry Stine was a pioneer in creating the hobby of model rocketry in the late 1950's. He wrote a very popular book "Handbook of Model Rocketry" that is in the 7th Edition. During the early years of the personal PC era he wrote a simple BASIC program "RASP-93" to calculate model rocket performance. A program listing appears in the appendix of the book. I was not able to find an electronic copy of this original program anywhere, and subsequently I have typed the program from the printed word. This program will run on an IBM 5150 PC, as well as more modern versions such as QB45. (Change the TXT extension to BAS to use.) Thanks! Michael
