#002: Recovery Test

After the successful rocket engine test showing that it was possible to send something up, the next thing that needed to be proven was the ability to bring something back down – intact. To that end the engineers set up a test much like the previous one with the addition of parachutes. They also wanted to try out a new engine design. A single engine worked well so four must be better right??

Note: Twitter time zone settings were messed up somehow. All tweet times should be +3hrs. This is fixed now for later reports
