New Years Day 2010 MMAR Rocket Flight of the N-1

On New Year's Day 2010, at the MMAR launch field (Muskegon County Wastewater Treatment Facility), Matt Johnson flew his latest incarnation of the Russian N-1 Rocket, complete with launch tower. It was a beautuful ,sunny day, although very cold (24 degrees!). The first two attempts to launch with a capacitor did not work, so a gel cell battery was used. Success! The rocket, however, did not make enough altitude to deploy the chutes. 30 motors (24 A, 3 B, 3 C).
