    Homemade orbital rocket?

    sorry to disappoint you on some of this but you cant hear anything from space, as there is no air (or anything) to convey it, and sound is just vibration. so you cant really take vibrations from nothing, or else nasa or private space/government space exploration groups would be sending us ringtones and songs, and within the day they did this there would be a remix, (ignore that last part about remixes) but otherwise i like the idea, if somehow you managed to get an infra-red/ U-V sensor it would be ten times cooler.

    and you would run out of air after a while so, maneuvers, not the best idea, plus their is no reason to maneuver unless you plan on orbiting, and you would probably also need solar power to power all of this. and 'furthest reaches of the galaxy' is unrealistic, unless you mean eventually (by the time it got out of our solar system, you might not be around to witness it), but still, i like it, it just isnt something you through yourself into without a LOT of research, but i am assuming thats why you came here.other things:wormholes are theory (and on the losing side of the debate) + they wouldn't be within our reachif by mars you mean orbiting mars, then yes, you will need 'Maneuvers', otherwise, just a really big parachute (because the atmosphere is 100 times less) to support the rocket...

    this whole thing would be really expensive, and there is always the chance that you might: hit an airplanehave it explode/overheatnot even make it to space (you would really need a parachute) + if it comes back down, it could land any where (almost) and if it lands somewhere in water, say bye-bye money, unless you have some 'maneuvers' up your sleeve, and you would also need a global positioning service (GPS)anything that ever happened to nasa or other space exploration organizationsetc.

    although i like the idea, it is near impossible, and certainly impossible at a low budget (by that i mean lower then any other organization) but there is still a chance for this to happen- study to be a rocket scientist and then join an organization as a 'rocket scientist'
