The Hound Flight Recap

This past weekend, students from the TU Wien Space Team successfully launched their Hound rocket from the Balls 2018 rocket event in the Nevada desert. Aiming to break the European student altitude record of 32.3 km, set in 2016 by the University of Stuttgart Team, HyEnD.

The Hound, a 2 stage minimum diameter rocket, unfortunately, suffered a failed upper stage ignition and only reached 13 km, short of the record and short of the Karman line. Not all was lost, this was the highest altitude obtained by the team, so I am sure they will be back to try again.
