This is the web site for Rocket Science and Technology, operated by Charles Hoult. RST provides free analysis tools for the serious amateur rocket designer and university rocket engineering student. Most RST codes consist of a MS Excel file that generates numerical results plus one, or more, MS Word documents documenting the theoretical basis for the corresponding Excel file. These codes were developed over several years to support various student rocketry projects at two California State University campuses, Long Beach (CSULB), including competitions managed by the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association (ESRA), and other projects funded by the California Launch Vehicle Education Initiative (CALVEIN), and Los Angeles (CSULA).

Now that our rockets are back down on earth
We knew we had completed well engineered tasks.
This website is dedicated to Dr. Janet Cameron Hoult, my wife, soul mate and boon companion. She has been a den grandmother to a whole generation of aerospace engineering students who have gained much from her insights, warmth and wisdom.
