    that's awesome. I've seen it from the ground at the mini o's one year. That thing goes through the sky like a bullet, I can only imagine the live view from that plane!

    that would have been so awesome. ive seen other jets go past before, and i thought that was sweet. seeing a rocket go up like that is a once in a life time experience

    You may not be able to become a astronaut but you can build and launch you own rockets, some of them are quite large.
    This one is 8" diameter and about 9' tall.

    The guy that built this 1/10 scale Saturn V lives in Hartville. This rocket was 37' tall if I remember right.

    You have to get a waiver from the FAA to launch anything over 3.3lbs. Beyond that it's pretty simple.
