Rocket For Sale

A follow-up to my previous post. I was browsing the Evel Knievel news and I saw this.

Evel Knievel Skycycle Snake River Rocket For Sale

The X-2 Skycycle steam powered rocket, designed to jump the Grand Canyon but failed in an attempt to rocket across the Snake River Canyon. Actually the rocket itself worked. The jump failed when the chute deployed shortly after launch and pulled the whole thing back into the edge of the river. It was never used again.

As you might expect, there is a bit of damage, but hey it's a piece of history.

For a small donation of $5,000,000 dollars this could be yours.
