The manned drop test of the STARCHASER NOVA Mk2 capsule took place in July 2003. The NOVA capsule started it's decent under a drogue chute which stabilised the capsule prior to the pilot initiated deployment of the main steerable ram-air canopy.

Mike, best of luck to you and the Starchaser group. You've come a long way lately. I am curious (And no, I am not going to pay for Starchaser website access yet): do you plan any more test launches from Morecombe or is everything left that goes "up" going to be done in Australia?

We may conduct the LES test flights from Morecombe Bay but at the moment we are focusing on constructing and subesquently testing the Launch Escape System and the CHURCHILL Mk 3 rocket engine.

I never liked that fact that Starchaser required people to pay before getting any news or videos. Not that they don't have the right to, but I just don't like it.

Same opinion over here.. But.. It's their right.. they chose.. so I don't have any problem with it.

Starchaser post information and updates to the 'memebers only' section of the Starchaser web site (http://www.starchaser.co.uk) first and then after a period of time the information is made available to all visitors to the web site.

Starchaser value their relationship with it's Club members and aim to provide them with a rewarding experience. There is also a discussion forum in the members area where Club members can talk with the Starchaser Team directly.

Information is a valuable asset, especially when its scarce, as it seems to be in the xprize!

So if a team can make some money from providing access to it, then full credit to them.

We're too used to the internet being a free source of information on anything, we feel that free access to information is a right. Not so.

I fully support starchasers restriction on the provision of information, and if I really wanted to follow the project, then I'd pay.
