An awesome story from Motherboard about BPS.space and Joe Barnards attempt to propulsively land a model rocket!
Video Caption: Joe Barnard left his background in videography and music production to launch his life of amateur rocketry, and he shares his DIY adventures in building rockets on his YouTube channel BPS.space.
After he saw the launch and successful landing of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, he knew that he wanted to do that too—so he took it upon himself to learn all he could about rocket science to get a job at SpaceX. Since then, many companies have come knocking at his door, but he’s decided to keep on forging ahead with his DIY endeavors to build, launch, and land fully functional scale rockets at a fraction of the cost and time of experimenting with real rockets.
Motherboard travels to Tennessee to meet with the rocketeer leading that charge for budding DIY rocket scientists around the world.
