Hi Folks,
Am CTO for Green Launch, Inc.
We are using a combustion light gas gun to launch vehicles vertically in Arizona. This to obtain air samples for the NSF from 30 to 100 km.
Very new to rocketry but am learning about flight controllers and parachutes. Some of the recent flights in excess of 200,000 ft impressed as HE Double Hockey sticks. Dr. John Hunter

Interesting. Hadn't heard of a combustion light gas gun before. https://greenlaunch.space/

hydrogen, not gunpowder to obtain much higher velocity"
