Static Firing Video

I plan to start posting some videos form the past. I'll post them as I find the time, many of them were shot on an analog camcorder and need to be converted to digital. This one is a close up view of the nozzle during the second firing of the ballistic evaluation motor for the Sugar Shot to Space effort. It really illustrate well the amount of heat generated. It was a disappointing test in that the casing failed and we had problems with the data acquisition. You can find the complete report here. It did provide some useful data though and I managed to get some good video.
