Southern Launch

Alas the anticipated first rocket launch from a commercial test site on Australian, Koonibba Test Range SA, didn't eventuate. They apparently had a mis-fire and had cease operation. They say they will try later in the week.

Well after a delay earlier in the week the Southern Launch team had not one but two successful launches today from Koonibba. Yeah .. I know .. people are going whoop-de-doo but I think it is a great achievement.

I think it's a great achievement. And as for the delay, what's the old saying... "Per Ardua Ad Astra".

Narrow minded bureaucrats are now seeing a value but is it too late


Australia was in the forefront in the 60's and 70's
