Wow! That’s about all I can say. How cool would it be to work on that project and actually see that thing fly. A group of friends have built a 21-ft. replica of an X-Wing Fighter and plan to launch it on October 10. It’s powered by 4 solid fuel rockets and has 3 radio deployed parachutes to ensure a safe landing, so the group can launch the rocket again and again.
Be sure to read the full story and the photo gallery at Gizmodo.com. Let’s hope they post video of the flight and recovery.
