What does a propulsion engineer do when he wants to experience the power of a rocket without going to space? He simply bolts one to a bike

... Quote:
Pickens got himself another bike and stepped it up, attaching a 200-pound-thrust engine capable of blasting him from 0 to 60 miles an hour in five seconds—fast enough to beat a Porsche in a drag race.

In fact, the rocket bike employs the same hybrid rocket technology as the suborbital spaceplane SpaceShipOne, whose propulsion system Pickens helped design.


How to make one on the website ....
