Introduction: Failed Rocket Engine

About: I am a recent recipient of a BS in Computer Science. Currently working for an eDiscovery company as a web repository technician (hosting, searching and helping attorneys to process their electronic data) but...

It lit and burned but the nozzle blew out and so rendered the engine nearly useless as a device to provide thrust . . .still looked bloody cool though!

    this was just a test: new mix, new tooling, new fuse etc plus it's fun to witness the power of rocetry without craning your neck!

    in the immortal words of Prof. Jagger: "you can't always get what you want" if you search around for rocket propellants though you'll find more than enough info a safer (slightly anyway) starting point: try searching for "James Yawn"
