The SDSU Rocket Project had a successful launch of their Lox/Methane powered Lady Elizabeth rocket this past weekend. Reaching 13,200 ft (4.02 km), the liquid-fueled rocket was recovered successfully as shown in the video below.
The team is planning on launching Lady Elizabeth in the FAR MARS prize for a shot at winning up to $100k for a flight to 45,000 ft (13.716 km).
This was the team’s 4th hot fire test of their LOX/LCH4 rocket engine intended to power their Lady Elizabeth rocket in the upcoming FAR MARS competition.
