Finnish rocket engineers go!

Just got an email: Haisunäätä, a Finnish amateur rocketry project has performed its first successful engine test. Go guys!

The estimated performance figures are pretty cool (for an amateur rocket): maximum altitude 2 km, max speed 241 m/s. So it's not yet competing for the Google X prize, but nonetheless it's showing that space is a bit closer to our everyday life.

Not only that, there's a competing project in Tampere, called Supikoira! Good luck to both teams :-)
