We lost a good friend and Rocketeer

Geoffrey Kerbel passed away last week in his sleep

Update: Memorial Service

 

My brother and I wanted to get this information out as many have been asking. Our father’s Memorial Service will be held on Saturday August 25th at 1pm. The location will be Hansen Desert Hills Mortuary 6500 E Bell Rd, Scottsdale. Blue jean attire requested because our father would have it no other way. Light reception to follow. We know our father was involved in so many hobbies and touched many people’s lives, if someone would like to say a few words that day please message me.

Two Stage rocket achieves 244,187′ MSL

Curt von Delius and his team launched the PHX4 two stage rocket on June 16 at Black Rock, and recovered it after a successful flight to about 244187′ MSL.

This is the highest two stage amateur rocket flight and it flew nearly twice as high as any previous amateur flight.

Congratulations to Curt, Monica and the rest of your team!
