This past Saturday we had two successful hot fire tests of the rocket motor under development for the project.
Bi-prop liquid is LOX and a 50/50 ethanol and methanol, built for a design goal of 500 pounds of thrust.

Congratulations Rick. Very impressive. I realize it's early days, but do you have a target date for a first launch yet? Also, do you know of any teams going for the liquid methane (LNG)/liquid oxygen (LOX) FAR-Mars prize? That bi-prop combination is particularly compelling for Mars missions returning to Earth.

Happy Thanksgiving Day,

Jay
