Rocket Truck

This project started when I was an intern at Orion Propulsion.  We started building it as a large in house engine we could use for test purposes.  After the company was sold the owner Tim Pickens got the team back together in conjunction with Nat Geo to see what our engine could do!  We adapted it to fit in the bed of a truck and we sent it down a drag strip.
