"99K" a P to N rocket project



"A few of us were sitting around lunch one day, discussing another 'to 100K' project, when we decided 'Hey, we can do that!'   Then Cliff asked Wedge to borrow a 'P' motor, and he agreed. Then James turned a nozzle, and started doing Burnsim work. Then I started using RockSim and WRASP to see how high this would go. Then we got a fin can for the sustainer. Then I ordered $1300 worth of stuff from Performance Rocketry, and eventually it showed up - including an ISC that's to die for.

Well, we're started, and it's a huge, exciting project. A truly scary and awesome project."
