Re: Orlando Lab closeout, Maryland Lab (real) beginning



Actually it reminds me of the toy rocket that I dreamed of and got for 
Christmas when I was about 6 or 7 years old.  Pump it up with water and air 
and push the button.  Worked pretty well until I put a little too much air 
in it...  Little did I know then that some 44 years later I'd be talking to 
aliens in outer space and to other Earthlings half way around the planet 
through the wonderous little boxes that toy represented, and that you guys 
make possible.  Keep up the good work!

Greg.

p.s.  just what is the specific impulse of a Mentos rocket?

Why?  I think it was a great idea.  The party at Lou's house was a blast and 
just what we needed.
