Hydrogen-Powered Rocket Video

A launch of a hydrogen-powered Estes rocket, which works by splitting the hydrogen and oxygen in water and igniting the resulting hydrogen gas. It's kinda hard to see, since it's just filmed on a phonecam, but it's something. :)

It made a nice satisfying "whumpff" when it launched. Not quite as dramatic as a solid-fuel rocket launch, though. It's more like a stomp rocket.
