Yup. When I heard about them, and learned the radio crew was based half an hour from me, I volunteered, but I never got an answer. Turns out that was because everyone was out of the office launching this thing. Not sure who did the motor, but it was an S200000 if I recall correctly.
Now that someone's done it, hopefully we'll see the next step in rocketry opening up. We know what numbers to shoot for.
Just got an email from a buddy of mine that was there- (hope he doesn't mind the quoting).
I got back into San Jose this morning after the 7-hour drive from the
desert. I led the search teams which found the rocket's nose section
(payload and electronics) at the 6600' elevation on a mountainside
about 25 miles from the launch site a little before noon on Tuesday.
CSXT announced this morning that the data from the spacecraft's electronics
that we recovered indicated a maximum altitude of at least 77 miles and
maximum speed of Mach 5.1.
62 miles (100km) is considered space. This has never been achieved without
funding of some government before.
