Hi again Rick,
If you need some help with ablative materials or composites, here you have me.
Lately I'm making a lot of progress with ablatives [😃]

With a successful static test next month of the new 150mm motor followed by a
successful solo flight at FAR early next year, our plans are for the SS 100/150
to 100,000' be done in the summer either at the FAR site (preferred) or Black
With a successful SS 100/150 flight, a static test of the 200 or 250mm motor
will be completed in the latter part of next year. When a successful test of
that booster is completed, the SS 150/250 rocket will be ready for a space shot
( 100 km Karman line ). We have not yet determined what the cost will be for
the space shot.
On Wednesday, Eric Beckner purchased a 250mm short motor case for testing 250MM
grains (the largest sugar grains ever made). If our testing shows this size to
be not possible, we will make plans for either a 3-stage, a 2-stage with strap
on boosters, or using already proven 100 or 150mm motors in an OTRAG

When we get this up to the Kármán line? How much money is still needed to get

Dear Rick and all,
Thank you so much for the update. I hope you don’t mind that I reposted the
information on Facebook as well. We currently have 1200+ followers on our SS2S
page (and still growing).
Looking forward to share more of the successes and to follow the progression.
Keep up the good work!

Good stuff, Rick, I'm glad to see an update.
I'm in San Francisco for a spell, so it's once again become possible for me to
attend some FAR weekends. Not all of them, but if there are times when you need
help with anything there please let me know.

Up date on the progress of Sugar Shot to Space.
Since the transition to a conventional 2-stage rocket design, we have designed
a small scale 2-stage rocket similar to the 89mm MiniSShot but with slightly
lower total impulse to test avionics and staging. The testing was to follow
this progression: static testing of 75mm 'K' impulse sustainer motor; flight
test of the 75mm sustainer rocket; 100mm 'M' impulse booster motor static test;
flight test of the booster with a stand in nosecone replacing the sustainer
coupler; and finally flight test of the combined 2-stage booster and sustainer.
All tests of those have been successfully completed with the SS 75/100 2-stage
going over 30,000' (10,000 m).
Work is now progressing on a 6" (150mm) booster motor for static testing. After
successful static testing of the booster motor, the motor will then be flown
solo at the FAR site. Following that successful flight, the 100mm booster from
the previous SS 75/100 2-stage rocket will be used as the sustainer on the
150mm booster and form the SS 100/150 rocket. Launch date and location still to
Successful launch of the SS 100/150 rocket will lead to construction of the SS
150/250 2-stage rocket with construction expected to commence in 2017-2018.
Attached photo is the successful SS 75/100 2-stage launch last July at the FAR
site in the Mojave Desert, California.
