Watch: Michigan rocket enthusiasts launch a porta potty into the sky

Posted By on Fri, Dec 12, 2014 at 10:10 AM

Kick off your weekend with a little potty humor, or rather this video of southwest Michigan rocket enthusiasts launching a porta potty into the sky.

Folks from the Michiana Rocketry group, based in Three Oaks, MI, had been planning the project for about two years to increase awareness about rocketry as a hobby.

Here's the footage from the launch, which took place last weekend in a soy bean field in Berrien County.

The potty rocket climbed to about 2,000 feet before falling.
