Not a whole lot of news to post today but the video below is oddly satisfying to watch. YouTube channel The S decided to check what would happen if you glued massive amounts of matches together in a rocket shape, and then he stuffed the interior of the rocket with even more matches. Then he mounted the rocket on a cardboard truck chassis and used a fuse to light the rocket, which caused an awesome chain reactor of 30,000 matchsticks! Not a whole lot of movement though, and quite a fire hazard, so it appears this is not the ideal method to get to the Moon.
