Princeton SpaceShot Gets Part of the Way

As reported earlier Princeton SpaceShot attempted to launch their rocket to 100km on Sunday. The team, as stated below had a successful liftoff but unfortunately, the sustainer failed to ignite and coasted its way up to 50,000ft before coming down under parachute and being successfully recovered.

Although not a complete success, the lessons learned and experience will be priceless. If only an ignition issue is the ultimate thing to sort, I do hope they try again soon!
