The second launch in the series of three happens (fingers crossed) tomorrow.

Like the first, it will be streamed on YT:

The first was about 90 minutes late, but it was fun to watch.

At last, some interest in getting active again in space.

For the nation that designed and built its own series of sounding rockets (eg Kookaburra with two stage motor) over 50 years ago and which was the third nation to successfully launch a satellite from its own soil, (WRESAT, 1967), we sure have slipped down the pole a long way.

Cheers Ray
