Spaceport America Cup

2021 mission

Spaceport America Cup


This project’s goal, is the design and development of a solid-propellant rocket, with the ability to travel up to 3000m above the earth. Both the design and the development of the rocket will be conducted by the members of this team, while the scientific research will be conducted with the assistance of professors with relevant scientific interests and qualifications.

After the successful construction of the rocket, the team’s utter goal is competing in the Spaceport America Cup.

Spaceport America Cup

The Spaceport America Cup is designed around IREC – the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition for student rocketry teams from all over the country and around the world. With over 110 teams from colleges and universities in eleven countries, 2017 was the competition’s biggest year yet. Students launched solid, liquid, and hybrid rockets to target altitudes of 10,000 and 30,000 feet.
