Earlier this week, the CRW team watched the launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy and is using that launch as motivation to have a successful rocket launch on February 17. The CRW team has had a busy past couple of days as we’ve started to manufacture our full-scale rocket. We sent some parts to be 3-D printed, and we also machined all of our bulkheads using the on-campus machine shop. We have also received all of our COTS parts. This weekend we are spending some quality time in our workshop cutting the body tubes, making the fin slots, and drilling holes. Here is a video of some of our parts being machined.
