Same launch pads, later in the day.

The ~8 ft. tall pads are completely engulfed with smoke.

Three Aerotech Black Jack motors ignited in parallel.

    You would not believe the self-control it takes to not favorite all of these. '-}

    I'm having similar trouble not commenting on all these! Keep em coming at this rate, Steve! Great stuff, glad to have time to savor each one.

    Thanks... Ben & Vanita: restrain not thyself.... Hey, Vanita, you could take a little drive across TX and join us in October for the XPrize Cup...

    Zen: noisy in the good sense... a throaty roar of white noise
    (oh, or did you mean visual noise... like I need to lower the ISO? =)

    big enough to make space for some test rabbits, and catapult them out at the point of maximum hight, should dress them wormly though :)

    I've seen a video of these in action, they're surreal to see in real time, I imagine even more so seeing it live.

    Awesome. And where is the shot from the "camera and tripod in the foregroud for scale" note? That would be a pretty amazing POV.
