More On Rocket Science

Posted in Fun Stuff | NonTech at Saturday, 09 June 2007 19:42 W. Europe Daylight Time

Like last year, I was having a very relaxing and fun Whitsun weekend with my friends two weeks ago.

This year we continued our attempts building and launching water rockets, so our engineers Marci and Robert continued and refined their efforts building rockets that deserve their name. In 2006 we had only single rocket with one stage (i.e. a 1,5 liter Fanta bottle), but they ventured on designing some multi-stage rocket models. This is where the real fun begins. According to this DIY plan you can create rockets of indefinitely joined bottles. And do not to forget the multi-rocket human missile launch.  Today Jens uploaded the videos he took while we were lying in the grass preparing the rocket launchs.

We also had two rockets exploding because of excess pressure. While bursting one model basically destoyed Robert's self-made launch pad (an empty bin, placed upside down and equipped with a Bowden cable launch mechanism).

What else did we do? Let me tell you, there was quite a bit of barbecue involved. Robert recorded one of his excellent mixtapes live in front of the whole crowd. Slick.
