Nimrod's Offspring: Team Numb From Portland, Oregon Raising Money To Send A Keg Of Beer Near The 29,050 ft Boundary That The Waters Of the Deluge Reached & Then Drink The Beer When it Returns!




The water was fifteen cubits higher than the mountains which it covered. Gn.7.20

6,200ft
Help us launch a 2-stage rocket in Sept. The 1st stage payload is a 5-gal keg of beer. The 2nd stage has a full 15-gal keg of beer. Team Numb has been building & launching High Powered Rockets for over 15 years. In 2008 we successfully launched and recovered the 1st ever Beer Keg Rocket. This was an 11 ft tall, 350 lb rocket and the payload was a full, 15-gal keg of Portland's finest beer. We sent the beer keg to over 6,200 ft! This kicked off the new sport of Kegetry, or Keg-Lofting. Others have followed, but no one else has ever tried to launch a full keg. They have all settled for smaller 5-gal kegs.

7,700 ft
In 2012 we did it again. This time on a bigger motor and a more refined design, the beer keg went to over 7,700 ft!

20,000 ft and beyond?
Now it's time to up the ante! We are building a 2-Stage Beer Keg Rocket. The 1st stage will have 4 very large 'N-Class' motors and a 5-gal keg of beer. The 2nd stage will be based on the 2012 rocket and will have a full 15-gal keg of beer on board! We are anticipating a final altitude of close to 20,000 ft and a top speed of over 650 MPH!

We were all standing at the beach watching it and completely shocked at what we saw." Source
