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!
