Lead engineer Rob Adlard says “Our rocket is 20cm in diameter, and will launch powered by a solid propellant motor with 10,000 Newton seconds total impulse, experiencing 7G on it’s way to a maximum velocity of 600 mph (265 metres per second). The rocket will carry a 6kg scientific payload performing an experiment for the research of OU PhD student Vincent Deguin, who is studying planetary formation with Dr Helen Fraser.”





OU students can still get involved in this project which will culminate in the competition Jun 19-22, 2019.
