For thirty seconds or so, pilot Eric Scott will fly the worlds most advanced personal rocket device around and over the museum, generating about as much noise as an F-16 fighter jet in the process. Afterward, hell sign autographs and answer questions, followed by a special story time in the museum about the jetpack and an opportunity for kids to exercise their creativity by building their own jetpacks non-functional, one would assume out of various recycled goods.
Take off today at 11 a.m. sharp (better come early to be safe) at the Childrens Museum, 2121 Childrens Museum Drive. The show is free; museum admission is $5.50 to $7.50. For details, visit www.mychildsmuseum.org or call 303-433-7444.
