Latest Sugar Shot test of the Double D grain configuration. This test was of the short 2-grain motor to evaluate a new inhibitor. The test was a complete success. A larger sugar (dextrose) test by a SS2S member suffered a CATO shortly after ignition.

This weekend at the FAR test site we will be again testing the Double D motor and hopefully static testing our new 100mm booster motor.

On a side note, the Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering team (DARE) will be launching their Stratos II in a few hours to 50km. owered by sorbitol but using nitrous oxide as the oxidizer in a hybrid. We have a friendly rivalry going with them, I hope their launch is successful.
