Teknowaffle: A buddy of mine and I tried to figure out a way to combine the two, ie send a balloon up to 100k ft, and then launch the rocket from there.Unfortunately we would need liquid fuels, so that was out.
hatelabs: OK,..that's sexy as hell.
shonday: So no one's gonna make fun of the name? Qu8k is not Quake. It's queightke.
prjindigo: The truly awesome part of this isn't that they built it and launched it successfully... its that they were able to find the farker on one tank of gas.
Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: prjindigo: The truly awesome part of this isn't that they built it and launched it successfully... its that they were able to find the farker on one tank of gas.I'd say the awesome part is that they were actually allowed to build and fly it without ending up in Guantanamo Bay./haven't you heard? everyone's a terrorist these days.
prjindigo: The engine they had on Qu8k would shove a pair of concrete blocks to 25,000 feet.
The Bestest: shonday: So no one's gonna make fun of the name? Qu8k is not Quake. It's queightke.when YOU build a better rocket, you get to make fun of its name
