Houston, we have telemetry

Well, after much processing (not to mention head-scratching), we have crunched the numbers and made a pretty chart of the Sun Labs Space Program Telemetry. Note that this is one feed, from one rocket. Being a proper Space Program, we had redundant systems, and were actually gathering real-time telemetry from two sensors to two ground stations.
We had to interpret this data ourselves, as we had no built-in mechanism to identify the various sequences of the launch such as ignition, lift-off, ejection charge firing, return flight, or landing. We stared long and hard at the data and came up with our best-estimate.
The one thing we are proud of is that we managed to pull 6 Gs on the launch, as is evidenced by the sustained height of the launch spike. That is, if you look at the actual numbers and not just the pretty picture, a maximum value on the 6G accelerometer. (Of course, you can't currently look at the actual numbers, since I am only posting the pretty picture, but if there is sufficient interest, I can post the raw data, too.)
