Launched Android Figurine into "Space" .. kinda.
I have been working on a project to launch an Andrew Bell Collectible Android Figurine aboard a model rocket and "return him safely to earth" (in the spirit of the NASA Apollo missions).
The rocket is named "Android1" and the Android Figurine is my "As-droid-naut" ;) Anyway - I had a "fairly" successful test launch of the rocket and the "as-droid-naut" this past weekend and though I'd share the news with yinz. I'm pretty excited!!!
Android1 and the "As-droid-naut" in the ejection platform (minus his chute in this picture):
Here is one of the 4 the videos of the "as-droid-naut" ejecting:
The full coverage, including onboard video, more pictures, and telemetry data are here.
