Students from DART traveled to Huntsville, Alabama to fulfill the launch requirements for the Student Launch Initiative. This included an on-site launch readiness review which tested our knowledge of the rocket itself, followed by a "rocket fair" where we presented our project to teams from around the country. Launch Day finally came on April 21, 2013. Our launch was a resounding success on the borderline of catastrophe, and "No Bull's" final altitude was 5310 feet. This was only 0.5% away from our goal of 5280 feet, and we returned home with high hopes for the future.

"I believe I speak for the entire team when I say this experience has changed our lives," says Design and Construction lead, Andrew .
