This past weekend I helped launch a big rocket in the Central Oregon desert. Here is the view from on the rocket!

We're still crunching the numbers on altitude, but it was at least 4 km.
What caused it to spin? We don't know for sure yet. This rocket had active roll control on it that tried to execute a 180 degree roll at T+5 seconds, but clearly the roll rate got too high and it wasn't able to recover. Everything got back down in one piece on parachutes, so at least nothing was damaged. We'll try again.
