Video: Starchaser Tempest 4 Launch

Former Ansari X-Prize competitor, Starchaser Industries, are still working hard building and flying rockets, albeit at a smaller and slower pace than during the x-prize competition. The team recently launched their Tempest rocket which stands at 4.2m in length and is powered by a 1000N thrust solid rocket motor, the rocket reached a peak altitude of 3000ft and was recovered successfully.

Starchaser have in the past built liquid fuelled rockets and engines but have slowed the development and pace since the end of the x-prize competition. You can find more information on their website and facebook page for recent updates.
