Armadillo Aerospace Reaches 137,000 ft with "Stiga"



I've been following this company for a while, and am very impressed with what they can do. It is a very small company with only a handful of employees. One of them, (Ben Brockert) is an alumnus of Iowa State, and I met him down in Boulder Colorado during the 2011 Space Vision conference.

How great is that footage?!? I love how clearly thin the air is in near space, and also love how short the flight was. The thrust on that rocket was low, but it gained speed at a very steady rate. It would be cool to see flight data for this one.
