Porta-Potty Rocket

The Throne Thrusters is a group of Michigan-based rocket enthusiasts who have decided to attach high-powered rockets to a porta-potty and blast it thousands of feet into the air.
They're doing this in order to increase awareness of rocketry as a hobby, as well as to prove that it's possible to turn a porta-potty into a rocket. Launch is set for Nov. 22.

Check out their Facebook page for more details. [via Online Athens]

I wish them the best! Maybe this will give all that useless sh1t orbiting around up there someplace to go.

Model rocketry is a great hobby, one I would recommend for any child. Although most of my hobbies have grown in size (and expense) over the years, model rocketry is still an inexpensive way to get out of the house for a weekend afternoon.

In the Aeronautic biz there's a saying:"Put enough horsepower on it and you can fly anything, even a barn door."
Remember those water powered rockets you played with as a kid? These guys http://www.aircommandrockets.com/ are trying to push'em into orbit!

If lift plus thrust is greater than weight plus drag. Why anything will fly.

During the 1960's race to the moon, I was selling BIG firecrackers to fund my homemade gunpowder rockets. I was making big improvements in the quality when I got shut down. An idiot town boy threw a firecracker in the air and it landed on his neighdours roof ~~~ taking down the gutters. 😊

Hay Patty! You're back....

As the saying goes, "The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys".

Then there's, "He who dies with the most toys, wins!".

Why am I clicking on the "Notify me" and still not getting any?
