Scruffy is now at home.

Owner Paula said today, "Yes that was him. We picked him up last night and brought him home (5.5 hr trip) took him to the vets, dehydrated, very tired, hasn't eaten for 13 days. But I think he's going to be OK. We're overjoyed to get him home. THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU. He has just about no nails left, his eye was affected by dehydration. He had brambles cuts everywhere. But he's home."

We wish Scruff a quick recovery from his grand adventure.

The rocket has been found!

Buxton-raised team leader with the Monash High Powered Rocketry (HPR) team, Isaac Sims, was delighted to advise Melbourne radio station 3AW that their missing rocket had been found.

The rocket had been lost by baggage handlers when the team were in transit to the USA to compete in the Spaceport America Cup.

After quite a few tense hours, the rocket was finally located and returned to the team. They will now be able to compete in the prestigious event.

Poor weather conditions meant that the competition couldn't go ahead yesterday. If it had, the Monash team would have been in big trouble.Project Aether has sucessfully made it to Spaceport!

Currently, the team is working hard to get Project Aether flight ready, and ready to launch. We would like to thank everyone for their support, and a shoutout to 3AW Breakfast, 2GB Sydney and Jetstar Australia for all their help with retrieving the rocket.

Where about in Alexandra?

As I said in the first post, this dog is an Akita and they are known to be a bit stand offish. Please if you see him, contact the owners asap. We would love to see him returned home! 😟

I hope you find your baby

UPDATE: It is believed that the Black Spur has now re-opened.

PREVIOUSLY: There's an incident on the Black Spur involving a single vehicle with a trailer. There is one occupant, and there are believed to be no injuries.

The road could be closed for some time. Six emergency vehicles are in attendance.
