A wine bottle cork is turned into a rocket using co2 gas. It's loud, fast, and fun!

Video coming soon!

Step 1: Ingredients

When you think vinegar and baking soda, you probably think a lame little bubbling blob. This is neither lame, nor a blob. This is a co2 cork rocket that is loud and fast.


pure white vinegar
baking soda


small wine bottle with cork
small spoon (tea spoon (tsp) )
i tried this on a different instructable, and it didnt work! this one sounds like it would work. i will make it as soon as i get the materials
I suggest you use a plastic bottle, after doing this a lot your bottle might explode and that&acute;s not funny when you're standing near. <sup></sup><br/>
Did you know that flying wine bottle corks kill more people every year than shark attacks?
ru serious? thats pretty cool!!!!!!!!!!!
COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just tried this in my living room.There was a POW and the cork bounced of the ceiling.THIS IS COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your right about this being a cannon.
rocket<br/>A noun<br/> 1 rocket, rocket engine<br/> a jet engine <strong>containing its own propellant''<em><strong> and driven by reaction propulsion</strong></em></strong><br/><br/>I believe what you have is a cork cannon.<br/>
y do u consist on being a dooshe
cork rocket sounds cooler
if you guys think this is hard you should see mine it is super easy its called "Cool Cork Launcher/gun rocket" it may look dumb but its awsome
I remember doing this about a year ago with a Dads rootbeer bottle and a wine cork. Its impressive at how high they can go I had mine going to 100 feet+. Although I did add something else to the mix, not sure why I did but I added some dishwashing liquid. I had though about trying it with mentos and diet coke.
yu need to post a video on this. I tried it, but it didnt work. oh, and uguy is being anal.
yea I'm going to
that rocket was so totally sweet it almost blew my friends face off
or just take the last of the sparkling cider, cap it, shake it and the cap will fly.
if you dont have a wine bottle or a cork do this put vinegar and baking soda into a water bottle point away from you and twist the cap youll get a similar result
ya, but i prefer using the wine bottle.With the water bottle co2 escapes while you twist on the off the cap.
only if the cap is vented if its not then no gas will escape
I suppose.
nice doggie i prefur kittys
The point of the dog was to make you remember not to shoot live animals. The caption on the dog associates safety with fluffy animals. Always a winner.
i know i was saying i would have a kitty by me (:
