We’ve updated our engine (more details here), and we have been testing! Here are a few pictures of our engine on the stand and during the test. Enjoy!
We’ve made some updates to our engine! We have added some new flowmeters, as well. These new flowmeters will allow for an exact ISP on our new engine development program. Here are some shots of our updated engine!
Just in case you hadn’t heard the good news – our rocket tube sections are officially onsite! We are ecstatic. We thought we would share a few quick snaps of them, so you could join in on the excitement. These tubes are sufficient for building two rockets, when they’re coupled with tanks, etc.
Microgravity, also known as zero gravity, is simply the absence of gravity. Microgravity research plays a big role in the commercialization of spaceflight. Microgravity research can be used for biomedical and pharmaceutical research, fluid and fundamental physics, materials science, aerospace engineering, or on space exploration hardware. Microgravity experiments can be conducted in a few different ways. They can […]
Suborbital rockets provide huge advantages for space experiments, that other vehicle types can not provide. There are many reasons to use suborbital rockets, and today we’ll be breaking down just a few of those advantages. 1: The Cost When you compare suborbital rockets to orbital vehicles and experiments at a space station, the cost is […]
Suborbital spaceflights are becoming increasingly more popular, and they’re definitely our thing. Today we’re sharing a few quick facts about suborbital flights. 1: A suborbital flight will at least reach an altitude of 100 km, which is about 62 miles above sea level. This 100 km altitude is commonly known as the Kármán line because it’s about the altitude where […]
Suborbital and orbital spaceflights are two very different types of flights. The difference is very easy to distinguish, though. Today, we’re breaking down suborbital vs orbital flights. A suborbital flight is a flight that does not send the vehicle into orbit. The launcher will fly to space, but will not enter into orbit. The maximum flight speed […]
