This is the first rocket launch out of Camden, Georgia in many decades.

Hot of the press… amazing video of our launch today at @CamdenSpaceport pic.twitter.com/QBtPlCs8zs

    No guidance, no mass fraction, no staging.
    A Potemkin show rocket technologically indistinguishable from the Garvey rockets that have been launching for years…. where has all the $ raised by vector gone? Not into the rocket?

    Also suspiciously short cutoff on the video, did they recover it?

  2. Pug Sanchez:

    They did. There’s a short interview with Garvey on the Vector Twitter page. He said it took approximately 45 minutes to find the rocket in the woods.

  3. Eric Weder:

    Looks like CGI to me. Maybe an artifact of the video compression, but no visible exhaust plume seems unusual …

  4. Paul Milenkovic:

    Like Jar Jar Binks witnessing the launching of a salvo of Iranian rockets?

    “This is the first rocket launch out of Camden, Georgia in many decades.”

    Has there ever been a launch from Camden? The website (spaceportcamden.us/why.php) mentions Thiokol’s testing of large solids in the 60’s, but nothing about launches.

    I meant rocket firing.
