Princeton Spaceshot Successfully Launches

The team successfully launched and recovered their 2 stage rocket from Spaceport America on May 27th, currently waiting on data as to see what altitude was met. The goal was >100km.

A second launch of the same rocket a few days later, unfortunately, had a failed sustainer ignition resulting from a brown out (an unintentional drop in voltage from the supply). The sustainer still coasted to 50,000 ft and Mach 3 and was successfully recovered.
