Here we go boy's and girls The space shot is coming up in 60-120 days. We are going to make a shot into space with a sea launch from a rockoon. I have almost secured the equipment we just got the Sea Quest a 28ft'er and my dad's 27ft Carver and a chase boat. As soon as we do the small scale rockoon here in 1-2 weeks we should be right on track to do it! I'll let you know how the waiver filing go's with post here coming up!

Today's the Day!

Hey Monroe!

Jeez - how did I miss this? I kept seeing your post and thinking it was one I'd read.

How are things looking? Is this shot going to be orbital or suborbital?

Don't forget, if it's going to be an attempt for the Prize, we'll need to work out things regarding tracking and so forth, and I'll start making travel plans. I'd sure love to hitch a ride on the balloon ;-)

Best of luck!
Wow, this sounds exciting!
Try not to make any adrenaline-fueled mistakes, given that you must be most excited of everybody, Monroe.
Again, thumbs up!
How is the launch-waiver coming along, by the way?
