    REAL Rocket Racing! NASA and NASCAR

    http://www.cnn.com/2005/TECH/space/1...ace/index.html
    The rocket planes will have a liquid oxygen/kerosene fuel mix, calculated to have a burn time of four minutes, requiring pilots to shut down their engines repeatedly and glide, then restart to pass opponents at up to 300 mph.
    Check this article out, 4 minutes of burn time and a league hopefully by 2007. Would be incredible.

    Pretty Cool!!
    But they should conduct this in plain
    desert, in this way it will be safe for others.

    We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice,
    We write more, but learn less.

    Compared a a ball bouncing back and foart and being shot into a hoop? Or men on ice skating back and foarth with sticks? Maybe you prefer people running back and foarth on a field kicking a ball at a big rectangle? If nothing else there's always men running around a diamond and swinging a stick at a ball. (sorry had to toss in my little pro-nascar bit). If you get into the sport, it's tons of fun to watch (crash or not) but then again I am biast on the subject as my family races.

    I cannot stand to watch nascar. I just get so bored...I understand others like to watch it and I guess they just have different tastes. or maybe more patience.

    Hockey is the way to go
