Full-Scale Progress

February 4, 2018 - Article by Joseph Taylor

After successfully submitting and presenting our critical design review, the parts arriving in the mail have begun to trickle in as we gear up for our full-scale rocket launch. The packages were few and far between at first but construction has begun to ramp up. We’re currently in the process of 3D printing the rover body assembly, sanding, and cutting components whilst waiting for the rest of the launch vehicle structural parts to arrive. We’re all very eager to see this project come to fruition. The aesthetic design sub-team is already beginning to brainstorm designs for this rocket’s paint job. Our planned launch date is Saturday, February 24th around 1pm in Bayboro, NC with a rain-date the following Sunday. Keep an eye on our social media accounts for photos and updates. Wish us luck!
