SStS Success!

The Sugar Shot project reached a significant milestone this weekend with the first successful firing of the flight configuration dualphase motor. This is a design concept that many "experts" have said would never work. Congratulations to the team and particularly to Richard Nakka for never losing faith in the concept and working tirelessly to get the project to this point. This is a truly unique project that involves folks from all over the globe; to learn more about it please visit the website by clicking Here. The goal is to put an amateur rocket into space and the only incentive is to simply prove that it can be done (with a propellant which is made up largely of sugar!!). If you've ever wanted to be a part of something like this please consider making a donation. Video provided by Rick Maschek.
