Today after work we decided to do another rocket launch with my rocket "The Prospector". This one was quite a bitter different than any I have done in the past. On our first launch the top part of the engine didn't ignite so the parachute didn't open. The rocket went straight down into the ground at 200+ mph. I guess the name really fits the rocket because this thing dug itself in. I thought for sure the rocket would be completely destroyed but it was actually intact. However the top portion of the fusalage had pushed into the bottom half and I couldn't separate them so there was no chances of the parachute ever ejecting again. I had two engines left so I decided to give it a couple more shots.
The second time I took video of it going up and right back down into the ground. Still in one piece so I decided to use up my last engine. This was the final blow for "The Prospector". After this one dug in it split it half. It had finally had enough.
Natalie got to play around with the new camera and it's really fast. So as you can see, she got some pretty decent shots of this thing going up. There even better on my computer, in higher definition, because the flame is very visible even in the shots where the rocket is a few hundred feet up in the air.
