awesome DIY science video

Rocket Car Race

Not moon sized rockets, model rockets.  And I must say model rocket cars are much more fun to watch compared to moon sized rocket ones.  I must say it’s hilarious!  Of all the cars in the video that were launched, I think i counted 3 that actually drove.  There may have been more, it was hard to see with all the smoke.

It’s a national event down under. And seriously, with this advice:

And just a reminder: try to test your cars so you know they’re not
dangerous and are awesome.

If you can’t we’ll just guess on the day. Too light, won’t race.

Bring beer and umbrellas and snacks.

It is required to be good.  The cars though, they aren’t exactly what you would call, safe.  In the video above you can see someone got hurt, and just the way that the cars drive, they aren’t exactly safe, especially since there are people lining all sides of the track, just watching, and laughing along with everyone.  It seems like a pretty laid back kind of group though, cause there’s lots of laughing going on, and it’s not laughing at people, its laughing with them.

Also, I can totally see a group of engineers joining this and totally ruining it for everyone by making a car that’s perfect, which takes all the fun out of this event.  {MAKE}
