This Rocket Blast-Off Is The Farewell Your Christmas Tree Deserves

Christmas is over. Chances are you still have your tree up, but sooner or later you're going to have to get rid of it. Sure you could unceremoniously toss its naked corpse into the street, but you could also turn it into a crazy rocket. Then again, you probably shouldn't, but if you did it might go something like this.

Witness the launch of the XMS Mistletoe, big brother to the original Christmas Rocketree. You wouldn't want to be anywhere near where this Yuletide spear lands, or where it takes off, or anywhere near it really, but damned if it isn't cool. What do you say we replace all the New Year's Eve Giant-Ball stuff with an army of Christmas tree rockets? No? Yeah, that's probably for the best. [RocketChristmasTree]


    xD dat FF7 Battle win music at the end

    Playing a track by Muslim Gauze during the opening sequence of a video about amateur rocketry might not be the best thing to do if you plan on ever traveling to or from the US.

    just saying...

    The Joker is waaay ahead of you lol

    Always wondered if that was possible XD

    While this looked cool I get the feeling more damage was done to the camera rig than to the tree...

    Am I the only one feeling slightly underwhelmed... I was hoping for a kaboom... where's the kaboom? There was meant to be an earth shattering kaboom!!!!

    I felt the same as well!

    And what was the electronic PCB for? Was it like Star Trek TOS electronics, there to look like it is doing something! :-)
