Day Two: Rocket Fair, Rain, and Post-poned Launch

This post is about yesterday.

The rocket fair was half the fun. I enjoyed seeing all the projects other teams came up with.

This team was able to power there electronics with the exhaust of the motor.

MIT came up with a UAV. It was originally going to be autonomous, but not anymore.

Arizona State has a rover. Pretty legit.

Here's the team. Back: Chris. Middle: Krystina. Fore left: Thomas. Fore right: Mikaela.

So that was cool and all, the only catch was that Saturday was turning out to be terrible weather on the forecast. So we are now launching on Sunday.

This is good and bad. The good part is that there will be almost no wind, and our payload doesn't function well in the presence of even the slightest wind. The downside is that we have to be back for classes on Monday, and there is a 14 hour drive between us. We'll have to launch as early as we can and then leave, so we'll probably miss many of the launches. :(

Oh well. I'll fill you in on the happenings of today a little later.
