(February 6, 2010)

We’re watching the weather closely for this Saturday’s planned launches.  All is good, except for the forecast wind speeds.  At the moment, we’re seeing forecasts that are at calling for 20+ MPH winds.  It changes from day to day, but weather conditions with wind speeds close to (or exceeding) 20 MPH are grounds to scrub all MTMA club launches due to unsafe conditions.  We’ll keep you posted.   The planned missions for Firefly on February 12th include the test flight (dry run) of our dual deploy electronics as well as our first launch using the Aerotech F35 engine.

In the meantime, construction on the next Aurora class booster rocket “Big Red II” is underway.  Completion, and first launch should be in March.

The countdown continues for now…
