Hydrogen Fuel Rocket By Estes Rockets (#1876) Now you can generate the fuel of the future and launch a rocket into orbit! The revolutionary Hydrogen Fuel Rocket is a wonderful mixture of science and fun. The Estes hydrogen fuel technology uses water to generate the hydrogen fuel needed to blast a sleek rocket 200 feet into the sky. This set comes complete with a hydrogen fuel generating launch system, a four-point system check, a remote push-button ignition, propellant crystals, mixing bottle and two ready to fly rockets. Minor assembly acquired. Requires 6 D-size alkaline batteries – sold separately. Recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12. You’ll be outside launching your rocket in minutes. Caution statement: This product uses citric acid to assist in the generation of the hydrogen fuel. Citric acid can be found in everyday household food products. Short-term exposure to citric acid is known to irritate the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. It would be like getting lemon juice in a cut or in your eye. It would sting quite a bit. If your skin or eyes come into contact with the citric acid, simply flush with plenty of water for several minutes. If you ingest rinse your mouth with plenty of water. How does it work? By passing an electric current through a liquid solution composed of tap water and citric acid crystals the water molecule bonds are broken down into their primary elements of hydrogen and oxygen. These separated hydrogen and oxygen molecules then bubble upward into the plastic ball where an igniter produces the heat necessary to ignite the hydrogen fuel. Then like normal rockets the expanding gases thrust the rocket into the air. As the hydrogen ignites and burns it combines with the oxygen to form the by-product, water! Hydrogen is the fuel of the future, and this is a great way to show your kids one of the uses of it in a safe and controllable environment. Information. Ages: 10+ Length: Launch Platform: 20.5 in.
