So Iain and I tried fitting our nose cone to several
rockets. Kathy’s looked most promising so we focused
on it. By doing so, we all got wet! The problem wasn’t
getting the rocket into the air, it was getting the
nose cone to come off. We tried making changes in the
launch system to get the rocket to go higher, but we
were running out of time. Jonathan finally gave up on
the steam rocket and helped with the deployment system.
Mike’s rocket worked on a small scale but was
so exothermic (heat producing) on a large scale that
it melted the plastic of the rocket!
So in the end, we all gathered to send an egg into
“space” and break it back safely to Earth.
That’s it for Rough Science 4!
Kudos to a fabulous production team and crew!
