Undergraduate-Made Rocket from USC Reaches Space

#1
Here's the really small-time, low-budget side of space travel. It's a group of undergraduates at University of Southern California in LA that have been trying to launch a sounding rocket above the Karman line for years, with multiple failures.

Finally a success early this year, launched from Spaceport America in New Mexico.

Even used their own homemade propellant.

Glimpses of the Earth's curvature captured, so take note Mad Mke Hughes. You don't have to kill yourself in a larger vessel. An anemic little thing like that can get the job done, that's perhaps smaller (thinner anyway) than the steam-powered rocket you're currently using. "I'm a daredevil, though. It's not just about Flat Earth, I'm a swashbuckling daredevil!"
