4/22/18 Full Scale Hot Fire
The team completed the full scale hot fire of the finalized engine on 4/22/18. Though it was not entirely a success due to an overpressurization event, there were many takeaways and learnings that will help lead to future success on the next iteration of this engine. Photos from the day of the full scale test can be seen below.
