Boifuel rocket to launch Friday

Recommended Posts

I think this is really interesting.   

"It is powered by bluShift's hybrid rocket motor — called MAREVL (Modular Adaptable Rocket Engine for Vehicle Launch) — which uses both solid and liquid propellant. The motor runs on a proprietary biofuel that is non-toxic, carbon-neutral and "can be cheaply sourced from farms across America," the company said."

"A small rocket powered by biofuel is ready for launch in Maine. 

The Brunswick, Maine-based startup bluShift Aerospace will launch its first Stardust suborbital rocket prototype on Friday (Jan. 15), and you can watch the liftoff live online. Liftoff is scheduled for 8 a.m. EST (1300 GMT) Friday from a snowy runway on what was once the Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, in northern Maine."

It helps the farmers and gets the oil companies out of the picture.  Plus in the long run it costs less.
