The Mars rover has definitely made a lot of people excited about space, and people want to learn all about it.

Lucky for us, we have a place where people can learn to their hearts' content -- Clark Planetarium.

Budah stopped by to talk with Cynthia Checketts who showed him a rocket in a bottle.

She set up two bottles and added isopropyl alcohol to one of the jugs.

When the alcohol vapors mix with air it becomes volatile.

Then when a match is dropped into the bottle, the vapor ignited quickly and rushed out of the opening creating a flame and a loud "whoosh" sound.
