These are the coolest amateur rockets I've ever seen

Bamboo rockets are really cool. They are wheels with a central rod full of solid fuel and nozzles that spin into the sky until they stop and fall back to Earth on a parachute. Or explode. It's a big thing in Thailand—so big that they celebrate festivals to watch them fly and broadcast them on TV.

If you are from Thailand and want to tell us more about these neat rockets, please tell us in the comments.
