    Second Sub-scale Launch

    Yesterday the CRW team completed a second sub-scale launch and attempted the first full scale launch of Arion. The sub scale launch was 100% successful with no failures on any component. The full scale launch, however, was not completed due to the failure of the rocket to pass pre-launch inspection testing. In the coming weeks the CRW team plans to mitigate these failures and attempt another launch. So that there is constant improvement on the rocket some parts will be changed in order to complete testing on the competition rocket before the USLI competition.

        The CRW team used its delayed full-scale launch to finish qualifying the CRW members in level one certification.
