Re: 7X11 The Crimson Horror(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS
Besides, there's no sign that it's got any of the complex stuff... all it does is launch, go straight up, and explode. No need for guidance systems, liquid fuel engines, any of that stuff. Just a big firework (aka, a solid fuel rocket). A bit of a stretch for 1893, but not an impossible one.
