Our tanks are in the EXOS shop! You may have heard that a tornado hit the Michoud facility. (We are so grateful that only minor injuries were reported, but you can read the rest of the update, here). Our tanks are manufactured in the Michoud facility. The tornado delayed the tank completion and their delivery, but we […]
At EXOS, we make SPACEavailable! We provide faster, affordable, safer and funded space! FASTERspace… Our re-usable rockets land within 200 meters of the launch site! This keeps your cost low and eliminates wasted time traveling to your payload. With faster payload integration for pretest, you don’t have to wait 2+ years to fly! AFFORDABLEspace… We’ve […]
Our Press Section is in the works! The guys in our machine shop have been working hard on these pieces, and we want to share! Our helium tank fits inside of the Press Section. You can see a few pictures of them, below!
Ever curious about what the inside of our machine shop looks like? Well, here’s your chance to take a look! Hope you enjoyed this virtual look at the EXOS shop!
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 […]
