    I remember I did a pretty in depth report on rockets for a college class. I have always been fascinated with how they have been used throughout history and of course all the different types of guidance systems. Basically not rockets anymore lol.

    Live stream is up and running. Launch planned at 4am Nashville time, might be 4.30 though.
    Live stream has been a bit delayed, as the transmitter decided to track the North Pole instead of the receiver.

    Parachutes didn't deploy properly, it hit the water at app 46 m/s and is probably at the bottom of the sea. SAR is called off.

    So far the only video, more will follow.
    Ignore the counter, the video feed is slower than the audio (VHF) on it's way to Copenhagen, where it was mixed to a single stream. Launch is at about T-23seconds.
