GSSV Students Launch Rocket

rocket launch

The rocket was the STEM senior class project for the Governor's School of Southside Virginia. The crew reported "a very successful launch" at the Naval Auxiliary Landing Field Fentress in Chesapeake, Virginia. The recorded altitude was 9280 feet. It landed in a tree about a mile away but with a little help it was recovered and it is ready to go again. All of our electronics worked perfectly and as you can see below, there is some nice onboard video.
