Homebrew Rocket Howitzer

Homebrew Rocket Howitzer, originally uploaded by jurvetson.

Here's the 'flight' report for the pneumatic rocket cannon that I blogged about a few days ago. Click the photo and learn how trigonometry allowed this shot to be captured.

Unlike the Jujubee, which ignited a motor as the rocket left the tube, it doesn't sound like this cannon 'staged' to an actual rocket motor.  (P.S. - the Jujubee met with limited success.)
