Rocket Man!

17 Oct

Just watched this bad boy launch from my deck. Could see it all the way through the second stage burnout and separation about 75 miles up and 300 miles downrange.

This is what a daytime launch looks like. I can see this lauchpad (although a bit further away). I used to have a home a lot closer, and the whole house would shake when these went off.

This is what happens when something goes wrong (About 3:30 in)…

Yeah…I have “rocket insurance” unlike this unlucky little guy –
