### Propulsion
-Given the number of launches we would like to do in the future, we are developing our own solid-fuel motors. Technically speaking, we're using an industry standard Ammonium Perchlorate/Aluminum composite formula to produces motors in the 10K-60K N-sec range. We're also have worked on paraffin-based hybrid engines, for their safety and controllability. Currently no one is working on motors, though if you want to help get either of these projects started again let us know!
+We have worked on paraffin-based hybrid engines in the past, for their controllability. Bu given the inexpensive cost and reliability of commercially available solid rockets, we are not currently pursuing building our own rockets. In pursuit of nano-satellite obital injections, the propulsion team is investigating small liquid-fuel engines for extra-atmospheric maneuvering.
