UP Aerospace launch falls short of space

Looks like UP Aerospace’s inaugural launch from Spaceport America didn’t go as high as they had hoped.

Condolences from the OotC team to everyone who worked so hard on this launch. It’s always disappointing when something goes wrong, but I’m sure that they will learn from it and try again.

These are very early days indeed for commercial spaceflight, and just getting something built and flown is a real achievement. In the meantime, back to the drawing board, and don’t be too discouraged: look how many failures the early space program had to go through – and they had virtually unlimited budget and resources.
