The team packed up their rocket and gear the weekend of April 26th,  and made the long drive up the the URRG launch in upstate New York. On Saturday the team launched their 15 ft rocket. The rocket flew perfectly, and experienced members commented that they would never have expected such a large rocket to fly so straight. Unfortunately, though the charges and backup charges went off as planned, the rocket sections did not separate preventing the parachutes from deploying. Despite this hiccup, the team is excited to have constructed a rocket on such a large scale which flew beautifully.
