Bottle Rockets

After you use your power votes towards my project, Nerdy Science, put your Diet Pepsi bottles to good use by making Bottle Rockets!!  Purchase some PVC pipes and fittings from local hardware store ~$10 (but you could save for future use make this cost more reasonable) + 4 bottles of Diet Pepsi for $5 (not the best deal out there) + water + bike pump (hopefully, you have one of these on hand - or could borrow one from a neighbor).

Please, do not launch bottle rockets unless people (especially the kids) are more than ten feet away from the launcher.

Big and Lil J launching the rockets
J enjoyed watching the rockets fly up high in the sky, chasing after the bottles, and filling them back up.

Things to try:
**Different sized bottles (20oz, 1-liter, 2-liters).
**Different shaped bottles (yes, each brand has a different shape).
**Different amounts of water in the bottle.
