Re: Rocket Lab prepares for Electron test launch

Looks like a successful flight? though not many details yet. Twitter post says "Made it to space. Team delighted. More to follow! #ItsaTest" Not sure if the "made it to space" means orbital or sub-orbital. Here are some launch videos on their twitter feed: https://twitter.com/Roc...

Re: Macquarie Uni Astronomy Open Night 2017

Thanks Kryten, it was definitely a good night with several families saying that they would come out and visit the next launch. I think there were less people this year compared to last year, but that may have had something to do with the open night being more spread out in adjoining locations, and a...

Re: NROL-76 Launch

Wow, that was spectacular :shock: especially the close ups of the landing. Very cool stuff. I always find it hard to wrap my head around how huge the Falcon 9 is from the video. This always helps put it into perspective:

Re: See Through Model Rocket Engine Burning

Nice footage but I think he should have tried sealing the side of the motor case. Yeah it kind of defeats the purpose of making a see-through motor, if it completely changes how the motor burns. Was thinking the same thing. If you wanted to see the end burning nature of the motor, I would expect yo...

Re: L1GHT Shadow

Thanks for the nice words guys, I really appreciate it. The dark side definitely tastes good. What you guys do is truly inspirational, not just in the rockets you build and fly but also in the huge effort you put in behind the scenes to make rocketry such a great sport in Australia for the rest of us.

Re: 1st April Mullaley HPR Launch Photos

Bingo :D It was impossible to see the black rocket in the shadows on a small phone screen controlling the drone. Had it been a brighter colour it would have been much easier to locate.

1st April Mullaley HPR Launch Photos

Here are some photos from the last NSWRA launch at Mullaley. We had a reasonable turnout with quite good weather, although a little windy it wasn't too bad. The crops were nice and short so easy to find rockets. I was there only on the Saturday so these pictures are from that day, though apparently ...

Re: L1GHT Shadow

Nice one George. Congrats. I look forward to seeing what water rocket you use for your L2 8) Cheers SpaceManMat, that is the long term goal. :D While we could put a 38mm J in this rocket, I think we would need to upgrade the front end structurally. We will most likely build a new rocket with a 54mm...

Re: L1GHT Shadow

At the recent Mullaley HPR launch we finally had a chance to fly this rocket on "proper" motors. :D The first flight was our L1 certification flight on a CTI H-120 and the second was a H-125. I really liked both of these motors. Here is a video of those two flights: K07TM7cuvMQ Here is the...
