This past week we ran our first Tie Down test for the SARGE rocket! This is a really neat test, because we do a low pressure run of the engine, while the entire rocket is tied down! (Hence the name, “Tie Down Test”). This low pressure run was a success! You can catch a video […]
The integration testing continues! Check out these photos of our SARGE vehicle as we prep for a tie-down test, soon!
