    The launch has been postponed owing to a fuel issue.
    
    I had limited time when I posted the earlier post.
    
    If anyone is interested in the  information on the fuel and binder in use these can be found at:

    From what I understand hybrid fuel has been used in rockets before but it is claimed to be the first time in a sounding rocket.
