Young amateur rocketeers featured in IEEE Spectrum

I was happy to see amateur student rocketry featured in the print edition of IEEE Spectrum. I didn't find the article on-line so I snapped a photo of the photos. The article reports on the University of Southern California's Rocket Propulsion Laboratory (RPL) and the attempted 2013 launch of their Traveller rocket at Black Rock. I say attempted because it cato'ed shortly after the inset photo on the right was snapped. Actually, the majority of the article is about the lab itself. Cool stuff. If I had to go back to college, I'd like to study there!
