Fathom II reaches 144,000ft

As mentioned in a previous post, USCRPL students recently launched and recovered their solid fueled Fathom II rocket from Spaceport America, there was no mention of an altitude at the time of posting but now the numbers are in!

144,000ft in altitude and a max speed of Mach 4, makes this a record breaking rocket flight! This marks the highest altitude that a student built and designed rocket has achieved, while also being successfully recovered.

Great work team!
