Zucker rocket, 1933 Featured 23 Dec 2004 Print

Zucker rocket, 1933

Zucker rocket in 1933. Gerhard Zucker (1908-1985) was a German who worked in the field of rocket mail. His rockets were essentially hollow hulls with motors, of the sort used in fireworks attached, and almost all exploded on, or prior to, take-off. However he managed to sell a large number of stamps for mail to be used in his rocket. In July 1934 he attempted to fly a rocket between the town of Harris in Scotland and the Isle of Scarp. The attempt failed and he was deported to Germany, where he was forbidden from further rocket experiments. In 1964 though, he resumed his work and an accident resulted in the death of a student. He died in 1985
