Last week we did seven runs to 100K feet. It was part of a promotion for Samsung. We had rain, lightening and multiple wind storms yet each launch went off on the one second mark that was set six months earlier to tie in with a live event in Japan. If you need to get to 100K in just about any weather (these were heavy payloads too) and need to hit a precise mark, leave the rocket at home and grab a balloon.

Nice idea about the chair at the edge of space.
How about this addition: and animatronic robot sitting in the chair?

Contrary to popular belief, SSTO's in fact are actually easy. Just use the most efficient engines
and stages at the same time, and the result will automatically be SSTO.
