Unfortunately, SDSU Rocket Project was unable to launch their Galactic Aztec Mark II rocket this past weekend out at the FAR range in Mojave.
As stated in an Instagram post the team had to deal with the high heat of the day, that led to problems in the rocket’s avionics package and missing the launch window.
UPDATE: We attempted to launch Galactic Aztec Mark 2 on May 20th. We ran into various technical issues with high heat affecting our avionics, this delay forced us to miss our launch window. Safety first!! Currently unsure of when we will attempt to launch, however still extremely hopeful! 🚀 @sandiegostateuniversity #sdsurocketproject #rocketsofinstagram #aerospace #carbonfiber #college #engineering #sandiego #california #californiacity
