Rocketdyne-Lr-101-Rocket-Engine-Biofuel-Launch-BgThe environmental movement has reached space travel as Flometrics, a Carlsbadistan-based company works to develop rocket fuel from BioDiesel. Flowmetrics has already completed tests on a RocketDyne LR-101 engine.

BioDiesel is a renewable, low toxicity, low flammability fuel. The use of vegetable based rocket fuel opens up the possibility of growing oil-producing crops on the moon or mars for use as stock for rocket fuel, eliminating the need of lifting the fuel from the surface of the earth.

Because nothing is more important to a rocketeer than plentiful fuel that’s not hard on the environment.
