N15 Name: N15
Type: Hercules A
Motor: K2000
Launch: NLD6, ASK 't Harde, 23 April 1996

The N15 was a copy of the N12. The small differences were the single downwards faced camera and the sound recording and atmospheric pressure measurement experiments. The most important difference was, that all data was transmitted to ground control. The resulting values were close to what was calculated. The N15 was featured on national television on the "Klokhuis" show.
Again we had troubles parachuting, but it wasn't our fault. The cable of the main parachute broke, because it wasn't nylon. The nylon was bought at a DIY store as nylon. When we informed the DIY store, they sued their supplier.
