Wow... Yeah, I don't think I'd try that...
Interesting thought on the separation system, though (pg 4). We had a

The article says he's got a ten foot diameter parachute... Can that be

"On April 25, 2009, history will be made. At Higgs Farm in Price, Maryland,
Steve Eves will enter the history books as the person who flew the largest
model rocket in history. The rocket will weigh over 1,600 pounds, it will
stand over 36 feet tall and it will be powered by a massive array of nine
motors: eight 13,000ns N-Class motors and a 77,000ns P-Class motor." (Its a
model of Saturn V)
