La Colombe – Latte Launch
3… 2… 1… lift off! La Colombe Draft Latte is in stores now – to celebrate, we’re sending their draft latte to space! The Oat Foundry faithful engineers Jim & Luc drove 12 hours out to Muskegon, Michigan to prep and execute the launch.
Our engineers started by designing and building a rig (revised based on an initial test launch) here at our shop outside of Philadelphia, PA. After driving the rig and launch supplies (read – giant tank of helium) out to Michigan, the Oat Foundry team launched the rig, GoPro’s securely attached filming the flight.
When it came time to recover the craft, there was just one problem – the GPS locator on the rig had stopped tracking! Our team scoured the area for hours looking for the craft, alas, in the midst of the snow, we could not track it down.
– time for contingency –
