Description

The Professor has contracted a new supplier of pressure vessels who can produce containers of a significantly larger size.¨¨The larger size means that the weight of the entire rocket can no longer be supported on the bell of the rocket itself or on the wooden fins. To that end, The Professor has added metallic fins that also act at landing struts.¨¨Once the steam boosters have expended themselves, the main whale oil stage ignites. However, the thrust of the engine it not very much over the inertia of the rocket. A slightly more vertical ascent path is warranted.¨¨We still haven’t figured out why these fins tend to heat and explode but the professor says It happens (mostly) above the atmosphere when they (probably) aren’t needed anymore. You should be glad to have lost the superfluous mass.

A mod rocket called Tea Kettle No.2 (TL6). Built with 50 of the finest parts, its root part is IronPod.
