It was a beautiful flight. Congratulations Noel
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

I will have to pull my finger out and bump up our score. Wonder if 2018 will be as big a year.

Lister, why delay the inevitable? ? :)

Congrats Larry!! Your L3 should've happened years ago, or at the very minimum 6 months ago when you gave up your L3 motor so someone else could have a (successful) crack at their L3 at Thunda. A truly deserved effort.
