“I am working on my EPQ (Extended Project Qualification), in which I am making a model rocket
that contains systems inspired by recent developments in the aerospace industry with regards
to reusable rockets. This means that my rocket will contain a control system which moves the
engine so that it stays on a straight trajectory – even without fins! I am also going to develop the
flight computer to attempt to propulsively land the rocket. This engine test proved that the Thrust
Vector Control system could survive the forces from the engine. Another test will be completed
after Christmas to check that the system will remain intact whilst it is moving the engine!”
