Friday's successful launch of the Armadillo Aerospace 'Mod' rocket flying just over 2000 feet, from a launch stand to the center of the pad.
These relatively low flights are for testing and verification of the flight controls under increased acceleration and higher wind speeds. This vehicle, or one like it, will be flying Commercial Reusable Suborbital Research (CRuSR) payloads for Nasa in the near future.
