Galactic Aztec Mk.II Launch Rescheduled for September

As reported earlier the SDSU Rocket Project were unable to launch their Galactic Aztec Mk.II rocket back in May due to the heat of the Mojave desert upsetting their avionics and thus running out of time in the launch window.

All is not lost with the rocket now scheduled to be launched 16th September 2017.

Powered by a surplus LR101 Atlas vernier engine, Galactic Aztec Mk.II is 7.9m long, fueled with liquid oxygen/kerosene and is expected to reach ~ 30,000ft in altitude.

No Launch for SDSU Rocket Project

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.

SDSU Rocket Project Launching this Weekend!

Galactic Aztec Mark II will launch May 20th and has a projected altitude of 30,000ft at a top speed of Mach 1.8!

Good luck team!!
