NSL Build Day 1/7/18

Members of our team spent a chilly Sunday morning building their full scale rocket for the NASA Student Launch. The team is now one build day closer to finishing up their rocket before its launch in the upcoming weeks. Check back next week for another update on the construction of the rocket!

 

SOAR takes a tour at SOFWERX

On January 4th 2018 some of our members toured SOFWERX in Tampa, FL. SOFWERX is a partnership between Doolittle Institute and the United States Special Operations Command whose goal is to solve challenging problems in an innovative way. Our members got to take an exciting look at their facility, workshop, and drone flying room!

 

 

 

 

Sub-Scale Launch Day

On Saturday, December 16th, 2017, members of our NASA Student Launch Team successfully launched their new sub-scale rocket for the first time! The sub-scale rocket launched, separated, and landed safely, but the team did come across a couple issues. Despite having some tangled shock cord and one failed parachute the rocket did reach approximately 3,131 feet. With the sub-scale launch completed the team now has some great insight on what needs to be worked on for the upcoming full scale build days!
