“On the electricity workshop course we decided to examine how we could get something as high as possible, even into space, but at a very low cost. One of the most interesting ideas was to launch a weather balloon to a height of over 30 kilometres after which we could launch a lightweight rocket from the balloon before it exploded. The rocket itself would be fuelled by plastic oxidised by laughing gas. However, the practical implementation of this completely theoretical idea is still just teasing our imagination this summer.”
