Water Rocket Cars on UK National TV

Post by NPL_WaterRockets »

Hi All,
Slightly old news but a bit of fun relevant to this forum.

The story was that after UK TV's 'Gadget Show' made something involving beer barrels and a skateboard, they were 'flooded' with 'advice' by 'experts'. They took a couple of these experts to task in a competition. The day was great fun. We used liquid nitrogen to make mysterious smoke. The TV presenter was a bit big for the school's car designed for, well, small boys rather than big men in hobnail boots.

We wheel out the car now and then for special occasions including our annual water rocket challenge http://www.npl.co.uk/waterrockets.

Cheers,
Andrew
