Research Group Launches Zero-Carbon Fuel Experiment into Space

Professor Jeffrey Bergthorson and his research group launched, after years of preparation, a metal combustion experiment aboard a rocket in Sweden on November 15, 2019. The experiment on the TEXUS 56 sounding rocket comprised a red anodized aluminum tube secured to the rocket, burning iron powder as a fuel. With the successful recovery of the payload, the research group is awaiting the download of data to garner information from the experiment. Photo.
