HUGE R24000 Rocket Motor Launch at BALLS 2019
The largest amateur rocket motor I have ever seen, and I have been going to BALLS every year since 2004. I was one of the only people out at the faraway launch pads to capture the moment., 340 lbs., Over 12-ft. tall, estimated altitude 146K ft. But it came back ballistic, and the GPS-feed last reported a descent speed of Mach 1.3 and a final altitude of negative 16 ft. The going up part was beautiful, and loud. Case-bonded 8”-diameter homebrew motor built by Anthony Lazarro of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Rocket name: Mr. FIsh Business. Prep and Launch photos:
