OK, this is just too cool



I recently ran across the Mercury Joe website, where a man has a dream...

That dream? To launch his full-sized G.I. Joe doll into the atmosphere in a to-scale rocket!


Look around on the site and check out the movies (!!!) these amateur rocketeers make... very cool! I found this after-flight report especially interesting. Very entertaining.

Thanks Bill, this site made my day. I always wanted to really launch my GI Joe Space Capsule.
