Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

The largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

Me too. I would like to know what happened to that guy too.
Just speculating that his insurance company sent him a break up letter shortly after that.

If he had insurance. I remember some guy my grandfather was hiring to do "handyman" jobs, and I'm pretty sure he wasn't licensed. He would removed stumps, fix the deck. etc and we never knew if he really had any experience. So whether or not this guy knows what he's doing is another story. If he did have insurance, it probably didn't last for long.
