Busy Weekend and Inventory

We have a busy few days ahead.

On the advice of our accountant, we will be doing an inventory this weekend.  We should be doing it at our year end, but never have so we are starting it now.

On Saturday, we are attending the annual general meeting of the North American Propulsion and Aerospace Society (NAPAS) which is a Tripoli Rocketry Association club.

More tubes?

Another shipment of rocketry tubes.  A little smaller this time.

Certification Testing

I had the pleasure of helping to do the certification test for a new "O" motor from CTI.  By comparison, an "O" motor has 20,480.01 to 40,960.00 Installed Total Impulse (Newton-Seconds).  Compared to a "B" motor which has 2.51 to 5.00 total thrust - a factor of 8192 times ( 213).  Or, in other words, an "O" motor is equivalent to 8,192 "B" motors.  Yes, a big one.

Dr. Jeroen Louwers and Bob Pouliot were also present for the testing.
