“Sugar Rush”

Both Beauty and a Beast, this hot pink rocket packs quite a punch. Built by Mr. Jimmy Yawn, this rocket can go up to altitudes as high as 7000 feet. The propellant includes the use of sugar as an integral factor, thus the nickname “Sugar Rush”. You can see more of Mr. Yawn’s interview and launch here: A Sugar Powered Rocket | Street Science.
