STR-03 on the launch pad, just minutes before launch:


After a beautiful and fast ascend to an apogee of about 2300 meters, unfortunately the separation mechanism of the rocket failed and it went on a ballistic flight.
We were able to get 10 GPS location points from the descent of the rocket and extrapolated the landing site from this data. Today we well go on a search&recovery mission to find our rocket.
