Ky Michaelson, better known as The Rocketman, is one of the world’s leading rocket powered vehicle builders. He was featured in MAKE, Volume 05, and says he got his start using a Gilbert chemistry set at the age of 12. This JATO rocket powered sled is meant to take the strain out of the uphill journey, but I have to wonder what it’s like to fire it off during a downhill run.

Super sled ride

    Cool but, I just find a hill and use gravity for my sled.

    Amazing, not to mention getting away with lighting a rocket in a what must be a metro area.

    Sweet, how fast can it go?
