Step 12: Rope

Picture of Rope
The rope is going to be a very important part of the project. It will carry everything to near space. It also cannot have a break force of greater than 50lbs. We got some Everbilt 3/16 in. x 50 ft. Braided Nylon & Polypropylene Rope from the Home Depot. We bought 2 packages.

Why can the rope not have a break force of greater than 50 lbs?
