Michigan Aeronautical Science Association (MASA) have won phase 1 of the Base 11 space challenge, a $1 million dollar prize for a university team to build, test and fly a liquid-fueled rocket to 100 km by the end of December 2021.

Phase 1 saw the teams conduct preliminary designs of their rockets including details of simulations and initial test data, all documented and submitted in a report.

The team walked away with $25k, with 2nd place and $15k going to Concordia University and 3rd place and $10k to Portland State University.

Next up Phase 2 sees teams submitting critical design reports of their rockets by March 2020, with the first launch window opening May 30th 2020.
