It Was a LOX/LCH4 Engine Testing Kinda Weekend

Well, what a weekend it has been, both Purdue SEDS and the SDSU Rocket Project conducted successful tests of their own respective LOX/LCH4 rocket engines or methalox engines as they are sometimes called.

Both teams intend to fly these rocket engines in the FAR-MARS prize in May and therefore are eligible to win up to $100k of prize money!

Awesome work being done by both and great to see liquid methane being given a go by student teams.

We have ignition!
