Episode Summary

Episode 1: Travis and the guys compete in NASA's Great Moonbuggy Race -- an international competition to create a human-powered lunar vehicle designed to fit aboard a space capsule. Engineering teams around the world spend years designing entries but the Rednecks build theirs in one weekend. After all, Daddy did work on the original Apollo space program so they should have a leg up. Episode 2: With NASAs shuttle program now defunct, the Rednecks decide to build their own big ass rocket. Staying true to their redneck roots, the team uses whatever they can find, including a farmers abandoned water tank and an old safety ladder, to craft a 700-pound rocket. But they have to buy the largest rocket engines you can get without being in the government.moreless
