    50 years ago, the government made a propaganda video. Many young people were misguided by that fake story.

    Didn’t go to orbit – not a rocket.

  3. THE DOUCHEBAG

    ALL THOSE PEOPLE AND YOU GOT THAT FAR??? PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A LAUNCH!!! AND TRIED TO ADD MUSIC TO MAKE IT SEEM EPIC!!!HOBBYISTS HAVE GONE FARTHER THAN YOU AND YOU HAD PROFESSORS AND A WHOLE UNIVERSITY BEHIND THE PROJECT AND THAT IS ALL YOU GOT… YEAH THAT’S JUST PATHETIC!!! I CAN MAKE SUGAR ROCKETS THAT CAN GO MUCH FURTHER THAN THAT AND I LEARNED THAT ON YOUTUBE!!!

    Waste of time and money, sad to see there was no effort from the students to create something different, maybe a new propulsion system. Food for thought.!!!

  5. Truth Matters

    It didn’t reach an orbit. Just a toy.

  6. Lunar Angel

    Why didn’t it go higher?

  7. Rahul A

    No 2nd stage to get it to suborbit?

  14. Zac Peter

    What was apogee?

  15. Ryan Scherer

    Dig the new parachute

  16. TheRedstoneHive

    What motors were flown?

  17. Victor Donich

    This is a reusable rocket. It is evident that it is not the first time that it hits the ground.

  18. RB

    cool

  19. Clifford Kerslake

    what is the banged up weird mess on the side of the rocket body from the one cam view?

  20. Astro TommyS

  22. Yoyzz z

  23. Robie Trites

    Impressive that they can get it to land so close. Kudo’s Lads and Lasses. Fine work !

  27. Masud Rana

    Now get AI involved for optimisation

  28. Jae

    Would be a perfect cluster bomb rocket as well

    One small step for students. One giant leap for education.

    “Come on baby come on”

  38. Henry Chan

    50 years ago: put men on the moon and brought them back
    50 years later: doesn’t even have a vehicle capable of lifting astronauts into orbit so they have to rely on the Soyuz

  39. Daniel Polanco

    Congrats on a successful launch!

  40. Chandanm 333

    Who were watching in October like here

  41. Ray2Jerry

    Awesome stuff, congrats!! 😁 Every one of the students shown in this video has a very bright future ahead, keep it up!

  42. Tim

    this moment when us students are building better rockets than north korea lol

  43. [insert name here]

    The fact that they parachuted most of the rocket parts means that they are probably intending it to be reused

  44. Andrew 13579

    At first I thought, “They built that big rocket, with ULA involved, and couldn’t even get as high as the clouds?”  But thinking on it more:  The intention was likely to get a lot of students of all ages working as a large team (and sub-teams) on a substantial rocket (not just cardboard tubes) with lots of payloads to deploy…and down at an apogee where everyone could watch it all happen.  To that end, it looked like a lot of fun for all the students, to be a part of this big project and make it all come together to success!  That was good!  Very cool!

  45. Donny Helvey

    ULA doing education right. Teach while doing. Excellent use of your students and giving them real world experience!

  46. flying_marvin

    I love the fact that they did it on July 20, 2019.
    Exactly 50 years after our famous moon landing.
