'Sup guys, I'm gonna be away for a while!

I'll be going to Spain with a group of students to claim a military base  for about 3 weeks, starting this Saturday. We're gonna attempt to break the European altitude record of student-built rockets (Which is currently already held by us *Cough). Our rocket is supposed to reach all the way up to 50km (1.9685e6 inches for all you 'Murican savages), which is 4x higher than the previous record!
The team has been working on the rocket for the past 6 years, and after a failed attempt last summer we're pretty certain that this time things will go much better. Last time we found a leak in the oxidizer tank's main valve, which cooled the entire lower section of the rocket down to -150C (-240F) and destroyed the engine-control electronics and some batteries. In the past year we've spent a lot of time on completely re-designing the engine-control segment and electronics, changed quite a bit on the valves and fuel-lines and created an additional video and data down- and uplink. Besides, things now simply look a lot cleaner as well. The past year has also been used to extensively test the engine, and quite some improvements have been made there as well.

Either way, since I'll be staying there I probably won't be online much, if at all. (Good thing I'm not doing anything productive on here anyway, eh?) No idea about the state of the network at the base, but our expectations are not too high.

Brb! ;D

Hah, thanks!
And Idk, I just draw things for free whenever I feel like it. Currently don't really have time for anything though, study is eating it all. Still have a couple of WIP's that haven't been touched in over a year as well, and it's likely to stay that way for at least another half a year~
