Caught the news last night about a Kiwi Rocket Scientist developing and SUCCESSFULLY launching a SAM-sized rocket to 30,000 ft using a new type of rocket fuel - thixotropic - neither solid nor liquid, half-way inbetween.

Dang awesum!!!!

And I think theoretical physics puts both of them into the trades category.

Nice work on the rocket though.
