Momo Rocket Launch July 29th

Interstellar Technologies Inc have been working towards launch of their Momo sounding rocket, this will be the first private rocket launch to go to space from Japan.

Momo is 9.9m long, 0.502m diameter and has a lift off weight of 1000kg. Able to deliver a 20kg payload to 120km in altitude the rocket is powered by a 12kN lox/ethanol pressure fed engine.

You can download the payload user guide here for more information.

The team have had a very active development path, I thoroughly suggest checking out their YouTube channel if this is the first you have heard of them!

Although out of the amateur realm, I have been following the group for some time, so fingers crossed for a successful launch.

The launch is scheduled for July 29th.
