ChronoPoints | New Rocket Thrower Page
ChronoPoints is an initiative at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training dedicated to digitally documenting historically significant mid-century structures and artifacts. Our mission is to record a “life history” through the capture of digital data and by contextualizing it through contemporaneous photographs, documents, and oral histories of individuals associated with the artifact or building.

The Rocket Thrower sculpture is one of a handful of objects remaining in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park from the 1964/65 New York World’s Fair. Created by Donald De Lue, the bronze statue stands 43 feet high and is located along the Court of the Astronauts hurling a rocket toward the Unisphere.
