Product Information


Explore the fascinating history of the Star Hopper Rocket, the world's first interplanetary spacecraft created under Project Star Hopper in 1949. With strange unidentified flying objects being reported, a group of government scientists aimed to design a fast and maneuverable piloted vehicle that could compete with the unknown aerial phenomena.

Though no proof exists, Estes' snap-together Star Hopper Rocket kit brings the elusive project to life with its retro atomic-age silver paint scheme and detail-molded plastic fins, nose cone, and engine mount. A recommended Estes engine can launch the rocket up to 400 feet, ejecting an 18-inch streamer at apogee. This beginner-level kit is easy to assemble and perfect for small field flights and demonstrations. With the Estes Star Hopper Rocket, you can fly your own version of this cryptic craft!
