It has one hole at the top, making hanging easy. Wear it as a necklace using the leather cord that is included. Or make it into earrings, bond on a pin, or hang it in a window. The possibilities are up to you!
This is a beginner kit, so no experience necessary, just tools. Only 4 pieces to solder on, plus some fun hot gluing and you are done in 15-20 minutes. Detailed instructions and pictures are at the handy dandy Instructable.
Once completed, your rocket will glow depending on how much charge it has from the surrounding light. And if you’re a geek on the run (or just forget to solar charge your bling), the Rocket also comes with a USB tab. Rock!
