Steampunk rocketry = hydrogen powered rocket

From the annals of Make Mag, I find this cool hydrogen powered rocket. The control system uses a 12V 3.3Ah lead-acid battery to generate the hydrogen and ignite the gas. Kinda like an armor-plated version of the Estes Hydrogen Fuel Rocket Set.

Dean Wheeler also has a hydrogen powered rocket, but his used the hydrogen fuel to pressurize a water rocket.
