NASA is always out to find new way to propel their rockets. One enterprising geek apparently took it upon himself to send NASA a proposal to power a rocket with a “shit load of Coke” and a bunch of Mentos.
We all know that if you mix Diet Coke and Mentos candy you can make one heck of a mess and have fun doing it. We also know that more than one maker of messes with this concoction has ended up with a stream of burning soda to the face.
Growing up, the mix of candy and soft drink we all feared was Pop Rocks and Dr. Pepper. The word on the playground was that mixture would blow the teeth right out of your head. All I know is that the mix will give you some serious burps.
