Time to buy your own toy rocket!

Ok everyone, it’s time to go out and buy your own “next generation” model rocket
The folks at Hokkaido Aerospace Science and Technology Incubation
Center (HASTIC) in Japan have created a rocket for the home hobbyist
… only $19,000!

“Measuring 1.6 meters (5.25 feet) long and weighing 10.5 kilograms (23
pounds), the rocket has a cavity that can carry a small payload, such
as a camera, weighing up to half a kilogram (1.1 pound), it said.”  It can go up to .6 miles high!

We’re back into the space age … first the X Prize … now home
rockets that use liquid oxygen!  I’m glad they are requiring the 2
day safety course!
