Hi guys

Year 2000 is approaching and I am planning to launch a big rocket '99. Do
you have a reciept for a very bright-loumimous propellant?

Best regards

 Do yourself and everyone around you a favor and buy your engines.Leave
building them to the experts.

                                   Have a "SAFE" holiday.

Let me second that suggestion -- and point out that Aerotech motors
built with their "White Lightning" propellant might well meet your need
for a luminous propellant.  White Lightning burns with a long, bright
flame and dense gray/white smoke trail, ignites readily, and (IMO) is
the most useful of their three standard propellants.  If you get a
longer-burning motor, such as the G40 (three second burn time), it
should get high enough to put on a good show and still act reliably.

Be warned, though, getting these motors may be interesting, since you
live outside North America; I'm pretty sure they're available in
England, but I don't know what you'd have to go through to get them
imported into Denmark.  I'd suggest sending e-mail or calling Aerotech
Customer Service to find out what's involved, as well as checking your
local laws to find out what's legal for you to import and own.

Yes, yes I do!

Two and a half pounds of black beans, washed and soaked over night.
Place black beans in pot with 2 cans of beer.
Simmer for 2 hours after which add 1/2 cup of Dave's Insanity Sauce.
Continue to simmer for 1 more hour.
Salt to taste.

Putt,Putt,Putt....

Have you calculated the total impulse, average impulse and total burn time for
this formulation?

 Does the use of  a dark Stout versus a light Lager beer significantly affect
performance?

And lastly,

Is the flame color more like a Blue Thunder or White Lightning?  I sincerely
hope it's not a Blackjack.

Inquiring Minds want to know...

Depends on your budget. Currently my favority is Black Butte Porter.
Which I first ran into (after the launch) in Bend, Or. while attending
a launch in Millican.....Good time, good beer and good rockets.

 lets see 10 pounds black powder, gallon of gas, Styrofoam cups 100 or so
mix lightly  get six foot Copper tube about 10 feet long give or take with
fins welded on (weld fins on first before putting in mixter) or use that
copper glue install fuse oh six inches outta do it let mixture dry acouple
days  Write your will up put it someplace safe  (st least twenty feet from
blast er.. I mean launch site)  light fuse  and feel er i mean watch the
Blast   off....Hows that?

I'm not sure of the total impulse, but after witnessing this formula in action
I can tell you it's powerful enough to lift an entire roomful of people to
their feet and send them flying out the doors at incredible speed.

On a similar (kind of) note, the following is an update on the current
Darwin Awards:

*******
A recent suicide was found as follows: 34 yr.  old white male found in the
ba***t of his home died of suffocation.  He was approximately 6' 2"
and 225
lb.  He was wearing a pleated skirt, wig, white bra, black and white saddle
shoes, and a woman's wig.  It appeared that he was trying to create a school
girls uniform look.  He was also wearing a military gas mask that had the
filter canister removed and a *** hose attached in its place. The
other end
of the hose was connected to a hollow wooden piece of a bed post approximately
12 inches long and 3 inches in diameter.  This bedpost was inserted into his
rear end for reasons unknown, and was the cause of his suffocation.  It was
difficult to explain the circumstances of his death to his family
members.
********

I wonder what propellant formulation this gentleman was testing.  Or it
could have been a a closed-loop or gas-regeneration system experiment
gone awry, you never know.  Maybe his car had been repossessed and he
was improvising a source of carbon monoxide.  I dunno.
