DARE Launch Stratos II+

Dare as had a successful launch of their Stratos II+ rocket.
After a failed attempt last year, the rocket lifted off from the El Arenosillo launch site on October 16th at 1633 CEST time and reached a peak altitude of 21,457m (70,396ft), although not the 50km the team was expecting, the flight was still considered a success.
The capsule was recovered in perfect condition and the data and video is now being analysed, unfortunately the booster was not able to be recovered after the line attached to the drogue broke. You can read DARE’s full update here.
