Have your parents, grandparents or friends told You that You can be anyone? So, why not to become rocket engineer?! Without graduate Physics on MIT!
I'll show You how to build rocket and launching platform, how to made rocket fuel and safely ignition method.

Things, You need:
Big paper clip
Aluminium foil, 6 x 2 cm

Also, You will need some tools:

Step 1: Launching platform

Take a paper clip and bend it out to get a triangle-shaped base with one part pointing up. Angle between base and those last part should be about 45 degree.
Nice but a little more instruction like where to light it and stuff like that.
To be honest, I completely don't know, what can I add more. You have to heat up the firestarting powder inside rocket. Aluminium has very good heat conduction, so when you are heating whole rocket, it fires. Simply.
<p>and add more powder and more layers of aliminium the powder should be about 5 grams per layer</p>
<p>i failed</p>
<p>Houston, we have a problem... my launch didn't end very well! The mid-burn rocket fuel bursted out the side (too thin probably!) and burned me! But wait! there's more! it then flew... WITH THE LAUNCHER STILL ATTACHED!!! (maybe I went overkill on the fuel!) Anyways, I still got a kick out of it and enjoyed building it!</p>
Amazing flies great and very simple!!!!!!!
I like this its very simple and works greatly!
<p>This Tutorial is very awesome <br>and I have done it before . instructable <br>is Really good site for all people especially people with Engineering <br>background. I have made many project during my university and lots of Projects I <br>picked up from here. I was also able to college credit (read more here : <a href="http://bit.ly/1fg9K2Q" rel="nofollow">http://bit.ly/1fg9K2Q</a> )in during my electrical <br>Engineering program because of my engineering projects.</p>
that is so cool
i trued to make something like this a while back except i put 100 match tips inside of a tin foil body and used a sparkler as a fuse, it would have been awesome except that i had duct tape on the launch pad so it melted and the rocket got stuck and eventually just exploded instead of taking off
That's cool
launch em at da Nats... cz
yay chris hadfield!
That is awesome :D
