This rocket set is out of production (OOP). When it's gone, it's gone.
GET YOURS NOW!!!!
Now you can generate the fuel of the future and launch a rocket into orbit! The Estes Hydrogen Rocket uses sustainable technology to generate the hydrogen needed to blast a sleek rocket 200 feet into the sky!
How does it work? When you turn the launch base switch 'ON', electric current energizes the water solution in the fuel generator, breaking up the solution into hydrogen and oxygen gases. As the gases collect in the upper chamber of the fuel generator, the lights around the launch base begin turn on. When all the lights are lit, the fuel generation is complete. You will also hear interesting facts about hydrogen during fuel generation. When hydrogen fuel generation is complete, the Launch Base will then tell you that it is time to launch.
Launches are done by simply pressing the launch button which ignites the hydrogen gas in the fuel generator chamber, thrusting the rocket into orbit! Upon ignition, the hydrogen gas combines with the oxygen gas in the generator and turns back into water. Magical!
