Spring Weather Difficulties

Posted: April 20, 2018

The record dry conditions and the Kansas winds have made scheduling rocket launches difficult this year. The March Spring Fling launch was canceled after three attempts. We finally did get a low-power launch in on April 7th in Hutchinson. It started out as a cold day, but got nicer as the day wore on. The next launch is scheduled for May 5, again in Hutchinson. Here's to fair weather and calm winds.
