Studying the solar system in third-grade science class puts rockets in the air. North Baker School and one from South Baker School launched and watched their rockets reach 400 feet or more over the soccer field at the Baker Sports Complex Tuesday morning. John DeShiro, left, displayed his collection of rockets as a member of the High Powered Rocket Association of America. He wasn't allowed to launch his rockets due to FAA and other regulations, but students were fascinated. The blue and yellow rocket in his hands can reach 10,000 feet or more. (Baker City Herald
