If you look at the history of NASA in reverse, it’s about an underfunded government agency that gets people into space with the help of the Russians, develops a re-usable spacecraft, and eventually we go to the moon!
Be part of the next great step in our proud history of getting things off the ground at high velocity. I will be bringing a water/air soda bottle launcher like the one below. I’ll also have a few soda bottles and a variety of recyclables and crafting supplies to construct a space-ship fit for a Kerbal. Feel free to get a head start, or bring your own supplies for maximum ridiculosity.
I am not planning for this to be a formal competition, but if people want to when we start launching we can wing it. There will also be a secret mission criterion released at the happening.
If you shoot for the stars and miss, you’ll probably land somewhere in the trees and sagebrush and we’ll all have to go looking for you.
(For those of you who already started the Mentos/Coke thread, sorry to steal your thunder but it didn’t sound like anyone had committed to anything.)
