November 22, 2019 Successful SpaceLoft Launch for NASA
(Denver, Colorado) - On Friday November 22, 2019 UP Aerospace successfully launched the SL-14 rocket at 8:19 am local time from Spaceport America in New Mexico. The mission carried a record setting six experiments on board. Four of the payloads were provided by NASA's Flight Opportunities program under UP Aerospace’s 5 year IDIQ contract. The launch was funded under a NASA Tipping Point contract awarded to UP Aerospace in 2017 to develop technologies for the orbital Spyder launch vehicle. The vehicle was successfully recovered on White Sands Missile Range an hour after the launch and the payloads were returned to the launch site for data evaluation the same day.
