The Paste That You Love: Rocket-Minis Skyward!

Paukert, attempting to shake his paste-consuming jones, spent some quality time at Winding Road HQ digging up this clip from some unknown Sci-Fi Channel show which encouraged teams of rocketeers to take BMW-bred Minis and attempt to to launch them through goalposts. Not quite as rad as Me 163s, but still, well, rather rad.

The show was called "Master Blasters" and was on Sci Fi Channel during the summer of '05. Every week they gave 2 teams of rocket builders a specialized rocket to build that had to perform in specific ways. One week they had to launch a playhouse a la Wizard of Ox (complete with Wicked Witch and Toto) and bring it back to earth intact. In the episode above they were each given a new MINI to cram a rocket into and launch through an oversized goal post. They got points for distance, accuracy and style.
