USC Video. Traveller IV launched on 21 April 2019 and reached 103,571 m with 90% certainty using 81.6 kg of solid propellant. Traveller III had launched on 29 September 2018, but the parachute failed to deploy due to the avionics not being turned on.

For the students involved this was a tremendous achievement both in the event and the learning of how to go about making it happen.

A job very well done.
