I have no idea what makes it green, but some engineer must have had fun comparing the benefits: "This propellant has more thrust, but this one has more burntime and looks badass!"
2013 impulse burned: 5205.1 Ns
2013 impulse lined up to burn: ~56,445 Ns
I'm surprised nobody has said it...
Make a rocket SO BIG I can ride in it. Big enough to break the sound barrier. If it goes CATO, I've died happily
Oh, and apparently you can buy old Russian fighter jets for 150,000 or so. I'm assuming that would be pocket change, so I'd get two of those, whip up some laser tag pods, and have dogfights in supersonic jets with friends for kicks.
Definetly invest a good hunk of resources... It never hurts to make alot even more.
Minimum Diameter P motor... I've always been obsessed with Aerodynamic heating. I'd love to have the nosecone of a rocket sitting over my desk, blackened and charred. When clients/co-workers (Yes I'd still work) came to my desk and asked, my response would be "it was caught in a windstorm. A really bad one."

My rockets usually fly naked. If they survive, they earn their paint.
