Dude. Not enough stars in the cosmos.

That almost made it into orbit

Ok, awesome, but they sealed off the pressure release valve. For something like this to happen in real life it would take very determined stupidity.
However.. sometimes people are that stupid:
On a side note, compressed air cylinders have been reported to launch through several floors of a building if their tops get sheared off. I wanna see that!
Uh, not meant to be areply to anyone, sorry. Though they did do at least one variation of the urban myth about compressed air canister explosions, I believe.
The Mythbusters just did that one too, and yeah shooting a propane tank, if you can even puncture it, just vents gas everywhere. They needed incendiary rounds to make it go kablewie
Outta the ballpark!
One of my favorites. I can't believe it holds its course so well.

Holy fucking shit, how have I not seen this one before!? That launch was PERFECT!
This is probably what ICBMs look like in a steam-punk world.

Fucking amazing! Amazing that the boiler/rocket landed within 100 feet of where it was launched from. If aimed, it could have made it across the bay.
So... plausible or confimed?
I saw them live and someone asked how high the water heater flew and they said that there were two answers, one is around 504 feet because that's the limit that the FAA says you can launch something so that's what they have to officially say, then there's the real height which was well over that. I forget what they guessed the height to be, it was back in November and now it's May and I've forgotten.
This episode surprised the hell out of me
God I love this show.
