SUGAR SHOT TO SPACE SUCCESSFUL FIRING
The Sugar shot to Space project had a much needed successful firing this past weekend. After the spectacular CATO of the impressive DoubleSShot motor nearly one year ago there was a lot of discussion and investigation into what exactly happened and why. This test represents the first in a series that will lead SStS to the successful firing of one of the largest amateur motors of all time. Certainly the largest "Sugar" motor of all time.
Congratulations to Rick Maschek, Paul Avery, and Richard Nakka for their dedication and perseverance, as well as the many other numerous volunteers that have contributed to the project.
