Power Line's Hindrocket Honored In Rocket Competition

My friend and Northern Alliance colleage John "Hindrocket" Hinderaker received a singular honor from a competitor at the prestigious G. Harry Stine Memorial Launch this year. Team Vatsaas has named their entry the Hindrocket, and even modeled the entry from John's icon on the website. Team Vatsaas engineers predict that the 54" rocket will go a half-mile on launch.

Our justifiably proud friend writes on today's Power Line post:

We are truly honored to have this high-performance rocket named after us. It's another indication, I think, of how far the blogosphere has come. I'll bet no one enters a rocket named after Dan Rather in the the G. Harry Stine competition. As the event is going on this weekend, we expect to see photos of the Hindrocket's launching and flight on Rick's site, and we'll pass them on when Rick posts them.

We can't wait to see the pictures, but John is incorrect on one point. I believe that there was a rocket named the Dan Rather, but it had the unfortunate tendency to pull hard to the left and blow up in the faces of its owners.
