Incorporating aluminium into the fuel matrix for test firing 7 was particularly spectacular as the burning metal in contact with the High Test Peroxide provided quite a firework display.

Starchaserís R&D team are currently gearing up for candidate fuel number 9 which is the ultra high molecular weight polythene that will also be combusted in a stream of decomposing High Test Peroxide.
