Hi everyone,

Today's drop test was a success! This clears the recovery system for
launch, which is one of the very last things on our plate. Pictures,
high speed videos, and notes are up at:

Left on our plate: airframe final details (cut fins, attach aeroshell,
etc.), think about what flight computer and video we want to launch, and
finally do a systems integration/ground system test day.

For the record:

Sunday May 3rd: Ground systems and integration test day in Tigard
Sunday May 17th: Possible launch date in Brothers, OR
Sunday June 21st: Alternate launch date in Brothers, OR

Please try and keep these two launch date windows open until we make a
final decision which one to go for... in fact, if you can't make one of
these dates, you should probably contact me (directly) and let me know.

We'll try and call the launch date this Tuesday.

Andrew
