New British Airmail Rocket Successfully Passes Initial Test

\ANOTHER step toward the establishment of rocket airmail was reached in England recently when a rocket perfected by Gerhard Zucker, German inventor, successfully completed a short test flight.

Carrying a load of 1200 letters, the rocket was fired from Brighton and made a two-mile trip without damaging its cargo. The letters were then removed and posted in the ordinary manner. Encouraged by results of the test flight, a British rocket syndicate is planning a series of extensive experiments.

    Oh, poor Zucker! Later he really screwed with his “advanced” rocket. Well, he wasn’t a scientist after all….
