March 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)

March Launch Cancellation

March Launch Cancellation

I have just had a meeting with the Operations Officer at the CFA District 9 headquarters, which was quite constructive, however, they have conducted a risk assessment and subsequently refused the required permit due to lack of rain over the past 3 weeks and assessed the conditions are too dry and dangerous.

Therefore MARS Team regrets to inform all members and interested individuals that the February launch has been cancelled. 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
