Video: Traveller II Launch + Year in Review

USC RPL have uploaded a video of their ill-fated Traveller II rocket launch last year.
The student group was aiming to be the first to send a rocket on a suborbital trajectory, but a weaker than expected carbon fibre motor case around the forward motor closure put a stop to this, with the rocket coming to bits in the air.

You can watch the video below and read the full launch report with many pictures here.

The group have also posted 2014-2015 Year in Review, where they pick up from Traveller and continue developing the technologies to hit that 100km mark.
