The 278 mm diameter, 8.286 m long nitrous oxide hybrid rocket is expected to fly to over 100 km in altitude when launched in the Summer of 2020.
Producing 26 kN of peak thrust and burning for 38 seconds, the team hope to not only beat the current European altitude record but also become the first European student team to reach space.
