February Launch Cancellation

Based in the greater Melbourne region, MARS is the home of amateur rocketry in Victoria. (Not to be confused with the planet, we are much closer than the planet and operate less rovers)

February Launch Cancellation

The MARS Team regrets to inform all members and interested individuals that dispite working hard with the Landholders and the CFA, the conditions at the launch site pose to great a risk and the hard decision to cancel the February launch has been made. The MARS Team will continue to work toward resuming flying activities as soon as the conditions are favourable. Thank you for your patience and ongoing support.
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
