Crayola + Rockets = Crayola Rockets

Rocketry enthusiast John Coker had a vision: to refashion I-ROC rockets as a giant box of Crayola crayons, and blast them off straight from the box. And it worked — a rocket simulation program predicted that the one pound, thoroughly boosted rockets would reach 2,928 feet.

Spoiler alert: blue, red, black, and purple achieve liftoff: orange, yellow, green, and brown are stuck in the box.

A few more pics after the jump:

More cool rocket pics, and an explanation of their rocket-building methodology (and even a bit of Crayola history) at John Coker’s rocket site.
