The Physics 105 students tested their missile defense system on Monday April 23, 2001. In general, the rockets went up, but at this point we are not able to predicts the reliability of this system. A few hit a tree, but it would have been very unlikely that any of these rockets would have hit any incoming missiles, aimed at the U of R. This page provides a collection of pictures showing the rockets that were build by the Physics 105 students.
