New Website

While the blog remains largely the same, Shane has put together for us a new website. At last we are out of 1998 in the websphere at least!

Check it out!

Back from the Maker Faire

We had a very good time in side the TechShop Pavilion. We can barely talk now. We met a lot of new people and have some interesting developments from the excursion. Paul Breed (!!) of Unreasonable Rocket unexpectedly popped by. We were absolutely delighted by that. We made a ton of new friends and hopefully more than a few of you are reading this.

We impressed some machinists with the He reservoirs that we are working on with the Bridgeport mills. We were often asked if The Wind at Dawn was a sculpture!

We had a very good time. We were very happy to support Techshop.

Onward and upward!

Team Phoenicia at the Maker Faire!

Team Phoenicia will be at the Maker Fair tomorrow in the TechShop Pavilion. One of our rockets will be (partially) present. If all goes well, we will be doing a demonstration of how we use a 3 axis mill to make a hemisphere for spherical helium reservoir.

Drop by and say hi! We will have some t shirts to give away too.

PS Website update coming...and hopefully some big news.
