Gyro stabilization and the big a$$ rocket of the day

Clark Lindsey points to the latest flight of the Gyroc VTVL testbed. This gyroscopically stabilized testbed uses commercially available long-burn model rocket motors for takeoff and landing.

While looking at the site, I also found this video of the Blue Peter hybrid rocket, brought to you by the Brits of Reliant Robin Space Shuttle fame (or is that infamy?).
