Beer Rocket Update

The beer rocket was a failure.  After less than a minute of heating up the test tube,   the glass just cracked and the beer spilled out.  There was almost no pressure at all at this point.   The heat from the torch also melted one of the fins of the rocket.     

I'm not sure if I am going to try this again.   


We are planning on filming again this weekend.   Tentatively,  we will try to shoot bolts,  rust slugs,   and will see if it is a good idea to use  "Ramset"  .22 cal.  nail gun rounds to shoot .22 cal pellets from a rifle.   We might have a new shooter join us and bring some of his guns.
