Another look at the Go Fast rocket launch

Ky Michaelson has posted a video of footage from the Smithsonian channels episode of ‘Incredible Flying Jetpacks‘, the footage shows the 2014 launch of the GoFast amateur rocket to space, the launch was to mark the 10th anniversary of the 2004 space shot launch by the Civilian Space eXploration Team (CSXT). For those that are unaware, UP Aerospace stemmed from this first 2004 launch.

The full launch video can be seen below,

If you want to know more about the 2004 launch, I very much recommend Eric Knight’s book, ‘The New Race To Space‘. A very informative and interesting look at what it took to be the first amateurs to send a rocket into space.
