Who says you can't have your own rocket.  This is cool on so many levels.

Saw a clip of that on Keith Olberman's Countdown last night. That is very cool. The chutes opening up was pretty impressive.

I saw that also. Bloody impressive.

Even at 1/10 scale, that's got to be one heck of a massive rocket! Hopefully it's reusable. It would be great for airshows.

From the article, it was recovered in perfect conditions, but from the sounds of it, its getting only the one launch.  NASA has asked to put in on display.
