Created by the SwissRocketMan, this hydrogen peroxide-powered bicycle rockets you from 0-60mph in just 6-seconds, with a blistering top speed of 126mph. In the video, you’ll see British pilot Julian Bartelett attempting to break a Guiness world record. Watch after the jump.
H2O2 can be used either as a monopropellant (not mixed with fuel) or as the oxidizer component of a bipropellant rocket. Use as a monopropellant takes advantage of the decomposition of 70–98+% concentration hydrogen peroxide into steam and oxygen. The propellant is pumped into a reaction chamber where a catalyst (usually a silver or platinum screen) triggers decomposition, and the hot (>600 °C) oxygen/steam produced is used directly for thrust
