Matt sez, "For Christmas I decided to make a model Saturn V out of gingerbread. This one's 40 inches tall. I'm waiting for my niece and nephew to show up before we paint the flag and 'USA' on the sides."
Gingerbread Saturn V
I hope they plan on eating it from the bottom up. I mean, you have to eat the stages in order.
Here’s the time lapse video of building the gingerbread rocket.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsMPmVl8hys
Impressive considering the “greying” of Nasa… soon there will be no engineers left who can even build or operate a gingerbread Saturn V…
Yes and I thought the blueprints had been destroyed. Clearly not.
And so the wicked professors built a gingerbread rocket to lure little Hansel and Gretel into an Aerospace Engineering major.
Don’t worry, Kerbal Space Program is breeding the next generation of rocket engineers.
Well, don’t worry unless you’re an astronaut who expects to survive the trip.
Excellent engineering choice for the thing to help people escape really fast if there’s a problem and everything is on fire so they decide not to go to space. http://xkcd.com/1133/
So who ate the marzipan launch tower?
Hopefully your gingerbread LEM be of much higher quality than ours!
Looks like everyone had fun!
reminds me of tower of Pisa, but I still cannot figure why.
Fill it up with Karo-sene!
