Could someone please tell me where I can get pictures of Atlas rockets exploding? I am doing a Powerpoint presentation on the early space program (although I think I am getting a little carried away with it..... :wink: )

Google image searches usually give you anything you want.

This link may be useful. I couldnīt find anyone through Google image search.

Does it have to be an Atlas? Here's a picture sequence of the Ariane unmanned rocket exploding.

I tried Googling and failed. That's why I made the post.

OK, how about any rocket explosions (But they have to be somewhat old - can't be a Delta or Ariane; Vanguard, for example)?

I had to try it myself. Unbelievable - google rarely lets me down.

Hmm ... exploding rockets not found on google. Must be a conspiracy .... maybe Nancy is onto something ....

I went to corbis.com and searched for rocket exploding (http://pro.corbis.com/search/searchFrame.asp) . Maybe there is something in here?

("Atlas rocket" produced 6 pages of non-exploding pictures.
"Atlas rocket exploding" came up nil.
"Rocket exploding" shows these I linked to, but they aren't labled, and I wouldn't know one rocket from the other. Hopefully, one of these images are what you are looking for - there's 18 pages worth!)

Strange- you'd think there would be oodles of pictures of exploding rockets - as lots of them have exploded. :roll:

Sometimes I wonder where "The Right Stuff" got all the footage for the exploding rockets scene.

You could always rent a copy of The Right Stuff. They show a half a dozen or so failures. One must be an Atlas.

I could do that - since I need them on the computer, I would get the DVD.

Check through Encyclopedia Astronautica (http://www.astronautix.com). They'll probably have something.

That is funny that you said the movie The Right Stuff. Just watched this flick,finished about a hour ago, and realy liked it. What made me laugh was at the start of Chuck's flight to brake the sound barrier, there was that sticky thing that would be called a three- quarters moon. Then, that night it was a full moon. What a picky guy! As for blowing up rockets--yeh, there is a few in this flick.
