Through photos and descriptions, we'll visit the radical, technological, self-expressive world of the Technology Underground. The Technology Underground is inhabited by ardent amateurs who live on the (literally) cutting edge. Rockets, robots, homemade jet engines, flame throwers, Tesla coils, pulsejets, and rail guns are the currency of the TU. But it’s more than just scientific fun and games; these experimenters can teach us much about science and technology.
