    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Fueled by highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide. Bad nasty stuff if you came in contact with it, but it makes a lot of power.

    It's the same type engine the Germans used in the ME263 Comet at the end of WW2.


    Cool stuff. That guy's half nuts!

    You're right, thank you. That wasn't a typo either, I slipped a digit in my brain.

    That is spooky how that stuff will light up, even when it gets on something like a leather glove. It's damn sure a far cry from the same hydrogen peroxide we have in the medicine cabinet.
