If he doesnt understand science good likely hood hes going to die. H202 could create enough steam but it doesnt sound like he understands chemistry
and would use peroxide. Meaning he will get limited thrust as potential energy of steam cooling is limited, trying to heat water to launch anything is
highly inefficient and he needs probably around 4000 jules to get that thing off thee ground. He should use propane instead at least he could get the
thrust he needs. H202 would be even more efficient and give him the ability to control the reaction. Steam you have no control he will use all his
thrust immediately. Might as well make a steam catapult
Steam rockets have been around for quite some time. They are a monofuel rocket, meaning that you only need one tank for fuel.
The fuel used is hydrogen peroxide that is decomposed into steam and oxygen when it is exposed to a catalyst in the engine, releasing explosive
I know that he isn't using that technology, just saying that steam tockets are a real thing.

It's hard to argue with the "mad" part, and he seems proud of it. I don't know why the flat earth society is financing it though, he won't be able to
get a picture of the turtles holding up the flat earth unless he gets a lot higher than 1800 feet. All I have is this drawing:
Well someone who doesn't believe in science flying in a rocket....... Okie dokie.
People really don't think about what they say. "I don't believe in science" if that were the casr you should strip down to nothing and head out to the
middle of no where. You cannot use tools you cannot build a fire you cannot farm. Why? It was the scientific method that allowed for thoae things to
be possible. (Even though at the time it wasn't seen as science)
But who knows many gravity will remind him of its existence during his ride.
He would be better off renting a Cessna at the airport. They can get up to 15,000 feet and you have time to see that the earth is round. Don't know
what you can see in a steam rocket that can only reach 1800 feet. Maybe the grim reaper?
Heck I have been up on mountains that are higher then this Darwin award contestant wants to go.
