Indian rockets update

"A group in the Aerospace Engineering department at the International Indian University in Navi Mumbai, India has established a sounding rocket program that has achieved altitudes of 4.5 km, 10 km, and 40 km with their rockets. I’m told by Rajesh Muneshwar, head of the department, that their rockets are powered by a sugar based solid fuel. He also says the public demonstrations of the launches 'are thrilling, motivating and attracting more students to develop ROCKETS.'"
