Jack launches The Marsden

This is an impressive first! Jack Davies launched his rocket named The Marsden at the NZ Rocketry Public Launch Day on Sunday and set a teen record for the largest amateur rocket launched in the country. The Marsden reached 8383ft (2555m) and peaked at 800km/h - a truly amazing sight.

It's the biggest rocket in New Zealand – 4m long, 25cm wide; hope it goes well
