Huelva, (EFE) not before next May 28.
As reported by the company through its Twitter account, despite having high winds within the flight safety margins, low clouds and rain have not allowed them to advance “with guarantees” to carry out the launch this week as and as planned.
At this time, they continue to monitor the weather while waiting to launch the Miura 1, although they have indicated that the next opportunity will not be before May 28 to “guarantee safety on the ground and in flight in accordance with the most rigorous practices that they are applied in a first launch”.
Last launch tests
The Miura 1 is now completely ready after it successfully passed the 5-second ‘hot test’ required for the flight test last week, as it allows the behavior of the engines to be analysed.
The launch of the rocket will be coordinated from the El Arenosillo Experimentation Center of the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA), facilities very close to the Médano del Loro base.
The rocket has been in them since last March, precisely for the development of the last necessary tests to be able to launch it into space.
The final objective of the launch is to carry out a first flight test that allows validating in real conditions the technology developed so far by the company from Elche, for which it has different flight windows conditioned by the security of the area, the weather conditions and the availability of the rocket itself.
When this happens, Miura 1 will become the first one hundred percent Spanish private rocket to go into space. EFE
