I'm off to the rocket range.  It's going to be a crazy day.  All sorts of weird and wonderful designs will be flying.  There's one with a SIM card in its avionics which will attempt to make Twitter posts at apogee, parachute deployment, and landing. (Sadly I don't know its handle).

I also got to take a look at a plastic 3D-printed hybrid rocket.  The fuel that it burns *is* the oxidizer tank wall itself.  Seriously awesome way-of-the-future stuff here.
