Launching An 8-Foot Christmas Tree Model Rocket

Because what better way to get Santa’s attention than to hit him with a Christmas tree rocket as he flies overhead, maker of things Xyla Foxlin and Joe from BPS.Space recently launched an 8-foot Christmas tree model rocket into the wild blue yonder. Things go pretty smoothly until they don’t, and the rocket, just as life often does, starts going sideways. And if all of this sounds familiar, it’s probably because they did the same thing last year. Apparently it’s becoming a Christmas tradition. My family tradition? We just get drunk and I fist-fight my uncle over politics. Not to brag or anything, but I am bringing two K.O.s to Christmas dinner this year.

Keep going for the video. The really good stuff starts around 19:30.
