Cornell Rocketry Team NASA SLI
« on: April 10, 2017, 04:20:51 PM »
Well, just got back from Huntsville and the 2017 NASA Student Launch. The team has finished its third year of competition, taking 4th the first year, 3rd overall last year with a win in the Mars Accent Vehicle Challenge (and a $25,000 dollar check, as well as best vehicle design honors). This year we ended up with 2 out of the five technical awards, winning the Project Documentation award, as well as the Safety and Risk Mitigation award. The flight went so-so, we had payload issues and an altimeter issue on the third deployment, we will see in a couple weeks how we finished overall.

The team really appreciates having the field for their test flights, They and I  would like to thank Don Tennies, Riley Keller, and Greg Elling for their support on the test flights this winter in some really less than ideal conditions. The Potter field supports other teams as well, and the RPI team led by Jody Johnson expressed their sincere thanks for being able to get one test flight in before their first year down.

Dan that's a great job. You should be proud of the work you have done and promoted with them all.
