No, NOT your granddady’s model rocket club. The following video documents one of the more amazing model rocket launches ever. BE WARNED: There are VERY LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS SOUNDS on this video. apparently, you can hear the screams in space!

    oh, yeah? if that thing really made it into space, how come you can’t see the stars? the background just looks black!


    that is cool. the rocket hit mach 3, according to the notation on the side of the video. i remember as a kid, when i built Estes rockets, i thought it would be fun to design one that went mach 1+.

    How far the rocket reached? Are you had a measurement of the distance?
