The Origin

Hot Nozzle Summer is a movement within the amateur rocket community that seeks to break down the barriers that exist within the hobby and make it more accessible to new people, regardless of skill or training in rocketry or engineering. This movement celebrates all aspects of rocketry whether its getting a Level 1 high powered certification through NAR or Tripoli, or just shooting model rockets in the backyard with your kids this summer. You do not have to come to the live event to participate in the movement.

It was all born in a digital supernova on Twitter. It began as a joke, but the idea spread like wildfire.


For the history on how this began, you can check out this Twitter thread 


On July 23-25, we gathered in southern California at Friends of Amatuer Rocketry (FAR) for a weekend of celebration of the hobby.  At FAR we will launch all the rockets we can! We will have people available to certify you for Level 1 and Level 2 in NAR.

Check out the certification rules for NAR and Tripoli:

NAR Level 1                    Tripoli Level 1

NAR Level 2                    Tripoli Level 2

NAR Level 3                    Tripoli Level 3
