Sounding Rocket MkII (Archive) 

^^ Craft Information - Recovery Successful ^^

With parts from Umbra Space Industries, Captain Desson has been assembling sub-orbital sounding rockets to launch from KSC. Not only do these rockets provide for small, cheap test cases for rocket technology, they can carry aloft science payloads and offer a lower entry barrier for universities and large hobby groups interested in getting involved with rocketeering.

This is the 7th launch of his first two-stage rocket design - none of the previous launches have succeeded. It took him 6 tries to successully recover a payload from his earlier single-stage rocket design but seven tries to recover a payload intact also containing scientific data. Desson has had a better recovery rate with this rocket thanks to an abort system but has still not had a complete flight through the second stage burn.

We have recovered the payload and confirmed that its science data is intact! Congratulations to Captain Desson and the launch setup crew for a job well done. KSA scientists are already preparing new payloads for Desson's rocket to loft.
