Hello Launch Team, Yesterday the brane trust reconvened for final rocket preparations.   We did a final test of the various electrical components See More

EVENT DATE Nov 05, 2016

THE STORY:

On NOVEMBER 5, 2016  a full 5-gallon (19L) keg of beer will be boarded into a 10ft (3m) tall  silver rocket and launched into the desert sky, spitting red fire and smoke as it climbs to a height of 4000ft (1200m).   When the keg falls to Earth, we plan to drink it.

The mission of this campaign is to raise  the $800  for the remaining parts order.  A rocket engine costs $599 off the shelf.  The remaining budget is for parachutes and paint.  This campaign is not for monetary gain, it's for fun!

Donate now and you'll receive an 8x10" photo of the rocket and will be emailed a video of the launch.
