Plot Synopsis

Hosted by YouTube star and science aficionado Nick Uhas, ROCKET AROUND THE XMAS TREE is a holiday-themed rocket competition series. Each week, three teams of daredevils put their rocketry skills to the test, as they compete in a series of explosive contests to determine who can take their holiday cheer to new heights and walk away with the coveted Golden Rocket-Tree Topper trophy. The challenges include anything from launching faux Christmas trees sky-high in an attempt to deliver letters to Santa Claus, blasting toy soldiers towards Santa's pile of presents, firing candy canes at warp speed and impressive distances, and attempting to safely transport and land 50 delicate ornaments without breaking them using standard model rocket kits. These teams of super-sonic rocketeers, ranging from thrill-seeking amateurs to aerospace engineers, put their unique backgrounds and skill sets to the test as they take on these super-charged challenges and give 2020 the explosive send-off it deserves. Some teams include The Odd Rocketeers, made up of longtime friends Max Kauker and Alex Moreno, who met through their university's rocketry club and discovered friendship at first flight. Another team, Alex and Lydia Yeckley of The Snow It Alls, is a unique father-daughter duo of mechanical engineers who are ready to put their shared history of high-pressure robotics competitions to the test. Married couple Myron and Tiera Fletcher, known as team Rocket With The Fletchers, are ready to put their advanced degrees in fields like structural and thrust engineering to use and their motto, "Faith, Love and Rockets," into action.
