Teenager shoots off water rockets in Delft

By

Today at 4 pm, 13-year-old Boyan Slat from Delft will shoot off 102 water rockets at the sports pitch of his school, the Grotius College in Delft in an attempt to break some records. Slat built the launch system all by himself. Since 2005, he has been experimenting with rockets, using natural raw marerials like baking powder and vinegar. He calls his system the Bazooooka Mk6. The address of this spectacular show with music and special effects is Juniusstraat 8 in Delft and is free.

If someone scores some pictures, let us now!

The smart kid also has his own website: wetenschapvoordummies (Science for dummies). Here it says 101 water rockets.

Somehow, I expect him to attend the Delft University of Technology later on.
