Excerpt from the article:
Dan Pollino’s 6-foot sugar rocket accelerates to 400mph in 3 seconds and goes 6,000 feet high. It’s an awesome DIY project. To build it, get Dan’s excellent how-to book I Still Have All My Fingers: How to Build a Big Sugar Rocket on a Budget Without Losing a Limb.
We asked Dan how he got into rockets. He took us all the way back.
