Successfully launched Qu8k

Several Americans, led by engineer Derek Deville took part in the competition of amateur aircrafts Carmack Challenge and successfully launched a rocket Qu8k, which for 92 seconds reached the height of 36,880 feet and stayed in the air 8, 5 inut, landed safely. The maximum speed of 145-pound missile launched from a launch pad in the desert Black Rock (Nevada) is equal to 3516 km / h.
It is not clear whether the project will be able to Derek take part in competition Carmack - under the terms necessary to fix the location of a GPS missile at an altitude above 30,000 feet, but unfortunately none of the 4 of GPS-receivers, which were installed on board did not load cleanly .
