Amateur Rocket Blasts Into Space

The GoFast Rocket made history yesterday. The amateur team, named Civilian Space eXploration Team, or CSXT, built the 21-foot rocket, which reached an estimated height of 70 miles and an estimated top speed of 4200 miles per hour.

Look for the exact speed and altitude once the rocket (and its telemetry package) are recovered.
