So this thing is spin stabilized using 3 solid-fueled stages. Pretty much bore sighted as to where it is gonna go, circa 1950's rockets.

Has a dozen+ cubesats and non-cubesats onboard.

Will be interesting to see if it works, it will bring down the cost for small sat launches.

ETA: updated launch time: and again again

Not planned. No problem reported, but waiting for an update. There was a previous attempt at about 1800est, but it was canceled due to a range safety issue. Launch is out of Hawaii, so no clue what was downstream of it in the water.

Range hold. Count is about to pick up at T-Minus 53 minutes.

Yea. Odd to go from T-3 to T-53. But due to the range issue they said was a result of the hold, i'm sure they had to reass their orbit plan.

Officials have targeted a new launch time of 0345 GMT (10:45 p.m. EST; 5:45 p.m. HST) after a range hold halted the countdown in its final minutes.

Any guesses on how this thing will go? Seems pretty well thought out, but it also has that 'margin of error' that unguided things have.

T-19 minutes

I'm on it.

That rocket should blast off rather quick I would think.

"20:42 T-minus 4 minutes

The Super Strypi will rapidly fire away from its seaside launch pad. With a thrust-to-weight ratio of nearly 4.6, the liftoff will appear more than twice as fast as most other orbital launches.

The Super Strypi is based on a suborbital sounding rocket designed developed by Sandia National Laboratories in the 1960s, but this configuration features modern rocket motors scaled for satellite launches."

I don't think that went as planned.

Ummmm.... Was it supposed to do that?

Link Posted: 11/3/2015 10:47:56 PM EST
and the feed goes dark. It seemed to have a wobble before they cut to the graphic/tracking shot.

They cut the feed after the foo fighter shot the tail off it.

I just hope it wasn't really doing what that animation showed.

I noticed the tail looked red. I think the back melted off creating asymmetrical thrust from the SRB.

Twitter says it tumbled after launch.

It started to have a visable spiral in the smoke column. I'm guessing the tumbling graphic they showed was the remains of the tracking system in its final moments.

Surely it would've broken apart before all the spinning.

So the graphics mimicked actual attitude?

"The first moments of the flight appeared to go well, but an animation of the launch vehicle derived from telemetry appeared to show it tumbling shortly after liftoff."

Apparently it did, and don't call me Shirley.

God forbid if it hit the English Lit class.

Does anyone have a link to the video. I don't recall seeing an issue with the smoke trail during ascent before the feed died.

They haven't shown it again. I did notice that it was starting to get a corkscrew look to the smoke trail towards the end.

I noticed that too, then it went to animation and things got real fucky.
