September Launch Cancelled

This is a status update for the upcoming September 17 Research Launch - Hazardous wildfire conditions have resulted from low fuel moistures and hot, dry weather. These conditions are expected to persist with extreme fire behavior possible. So far this season, the majority of fires have been human caused. It is the policy of the Bureau of Land Management to take all necessary actions to protect human life, the public lands and the resources and improvements thereon through the prevention of wildfires. The Frank Hunt Field (our launch site) is currently under a fire restriction status. As predicted, this restriction has cancelled our upcoming launch scheduled for September 17.
