History in the Making

It was a historical day on February 6th, 2018 when the biggest rocket since 1973 was lofted up into space with 5.5 million pounds of thrust. The two side boosters worked perfectly and landed back on land.  The center main booster did have an anomaly and unfortunately landed in the ocean just about 100 yards short of the barge. Starman is now on its way to orbit the sun for a billion years if all goes as planned.

The little speck to the left of the Tesla Roadster is our Moon.

Introduction of the Student Experimental Payload Program

In the 90s, Greg Warren began a program called the SEP program.  It was a great idea and I would like to continue what he started here in the Columbia Gorge Area.  I was able to get in touch with him in order to get his approval.  He was gracious enough to send me a lot of historical data and was excited to know that someone like me wanted to continue to support what he had begun years ago.

I have updated his introduction manual with my mailing address so if you are interested, please let me know:
