Unreasonable Rocket Tries - But Fails

This video shows Unreasonable Rocket's first launch attempt for the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge level one prize. The rocket known as Blue Ball made a valiant effort but ran out of fuel at the end and came done with a sharp thud to the ground and appears to have damaged one of its legs. The team, a father and son combo, Paul Breed and Paul Breed, decided not to attempt a second flight today meaning they will not qualify for the level one prize. They will attempt to qualify for the second level prize tomorrow with their Silver Bell rocket.
