First launch

We had our first flight event just after 8:15 am MDT, with the launch of a Goddard replica rocket by Tripoli. The launch looked great:

However, the rocket’s parachute failed to deploy and it crashed in a cloud of smoke.

Armadillo Aerospace is scheduled to fly in about an hour for level one of the Lunar Lander Challenge, according to latest reports.
