Space Access '12: Ben Brockert: Armadillo Aerospace

Ben played a 16 minute video that reviewed Armadillo accomplishments over th last year, and explained what was happening in the video while it ran. With videos and comments like that, sometimes you want to just sit back and soak it all in, which is what I did instead of writing a lot of comments. He showed work for the NASA Morpheus project, Stig, Dalek, Stiga. Their next rocket has a 20 inch diameter instead of 15 inches. One fun comment was on their wind tunnel test: dragging a ballute behind a tow truck.
