From the MAKE Flickr pool

J Miller shares video of the maiden voyage of his rocket built from the plans in MAKE Volume 15. The reaction to the lack-of-rocket-return here is genuinely priceless! And in case you’re curious, yes, it was sucessfully recovered. Definitely a good idea to use a very wide open space for testing :)
