Interstellar Technologies Inc test 10kN engine

Interstellar Technologies Inc on January 16th carried out a test of their 10kN lox/ethanol liquid fuelled rocket engine.

The engine burned for a total of 4.5sec, operating at a chamber pressure of 1.01MPa (~146psi) and produced 10kN of thrust (2248lbf). The successful firing of this engine paves the way for more testing, gradually working towards a full burn profile for a rocket flight to 100km of which this engine is being planned to be used for.
