chabot imageSpace Transport Corp., reports that it launched a three-stage sounding rocket Thursday from its test site on Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula. Team member Phillip Storm said the rocket apparently went higher than 150,000 feet — but couldn’t be found afterward.
“The GPS was having some difficulties on the way down, which is our prime method of finding the payload,” he told MSNBC.com in an e-mail update. “We’ll need to launch another one shortly. The main thing is the microcontroller problem has been solved, and all engines lit as they should.”
The small-scale rockets are being used for tests leading up to what they hope will be the piloted launch of a larger rocket later this year. News Source
