Description

Easy to follow step by step instructions and 137 color illustrations demonstrate the exceptionally simple construction process. Best of all, only common materials are used and no special tools are required.

Using readily available potassium nitrate, or KNO3, plus ordinary sugars the avid experimenter can build, test, and fly a robust and simple sugar rocket motor.  These candy motors are not only easy to make, they also smell nice and caramelly.

Ummm, caramel....


Here is a video of the UC San Diego team test firing a K450 motor:


 

Thanks to Nico Montoya and his team for the video!
