Pictures of last months launch

My friend James took some great pictures of the zinc/sulphur rockets at last months RRS launch. Zn/S rockets typically leave the ground like they're being shot out of a cannon, so many photos I've seen only include a column of smoke but no the rocket.
You can see the rest of Jame's photos from the day on his Picasa site here. The day was pretty overcast and there were some really cool cloud formations late in the day. James captured a great panorama of the approaching storm clouds that he posted on his blog here.

Two Wheeled Rocket

The other day a friend at work rode in his friends Ducati Desmosedici RR, and I got an opportunity to look over this awesome machine in person. Not a true rocket, but an incredible machine none the less.
