The "edit" button is our friend.  ;)


However, I'm not aware of the episode in question (for the strip).

So which answer ya want?  ::whistle:: ::whistle::

Aparently, salami contains nitrates which will burn like rocket fuel---never saw the episode but I guess myth busters tried to make a rocket with salami..

Calling Frank or Baridium, I'm sure one of you guys has researched Salami rockets..  ::thinking:: ::thinking::

Glad my mental incompetence has been so well received.   ::banghead::  Too much Eggnog already, I guess.

The episode of Mythbusters I was referring to was actually two (Episode 51- Confederate Rocket, and Episode 64- More Myths Revisited).  During the first attempt, they confirmed that a salami can be used as an effective solid rocket fuel.  The first test was done in the shop (which subsequently lit much of it on fire).  In Episode 64 when they revisited it, they had a better triggering mechanism between the nitrous oxide and the salami, but the actual "launch" was only about 20ft.  Still confirmed, though.

Love Mythbusters....especially when they do cool stuff with airplanes (like handprop a Cessna and then shred the living daylights out of another plane)

Happy Holidays everyone.
