While growing up in The Bronx, my friend’s dad used to build rocket ships to launch off of buildings. And he used hamsters as pilots. While I will remain silent on my opinion of hamster misuse in the situation, I will say that my friend’s dad is now a physicist and that building your own rocket is pretty badass. Tonight, you can learn the basics of DIY jet propulsion with Pete’s Candy Store’s OCD Lecture series. Hackett from the Madagascar Institute has built jet powered bikes and merry-go-rounds. The Institute offers classes, but you can get the Cliffs Notes on how to make art that has the potential to blow off your face for FREE.
