10 years ago

I was studying to become a licensed professional Engineer. After the test (May) we had to wait for results. In order to keep sane, I made this rocket:
I passed, but the rocket didn't survive. :(

I loved that rocket. It was supposed to go 16,000 feet (not a typo - We had the FAA on the line to make sure we wouldn't hit any airplanes) into the air and return. It disappeared into a cloud, never to be seen again.

Where the hell did the time go?

Time went into the past. I'm wondering where the hell did the ROCKET go???

I shot a rocket in the air.
It fell to earth, I know not where.
The smoke trail vanished at the cloud;
Who knew gravity was disallowed?
