UBC Rocket hot fired yesterday, making us the first Canadian student team to hot fire a liquid fuel rocket engine! Our engine performance was right in line with predictions, with a thrust of 10kN and a chamber pressure of 300psi. A special thank you to #DarkVision for directly supporting the development of this test stand, which was named DARK STAR in their honour. A massive thank you to #NorLandLimited for letting us use their facilities for our hot fire. And finally, a huge thank you to the rest of our sponsors for contributing to our project and believing in our team! @UniversityofBC @UBCEngineering @CanadianSpaceAgency @ansys_inc #AlliedSpacecraft #LuxferGasCylinders @UBCMech @CarbonVideoSystems @omegaengineering #AdvancedCircuits @AandPTechnology #FluorCorporation #LabJack @powerweldproducts @ubcigen @mechanix_wear @seastar_solutions #Laird @osbornusa #Samuel @prattandwhitneyca @stickermule @lincolnelectric @rousseaumetalinc @stmicroelectronics.nv @airtech_official @ams_ubc #ChemTrend @coelumber #CommanderWarehouseEquipment @digikey @ieeeorg #LelandGasTechnologies #MatterHackers @megaprotools #Plasticase @redbullcanada @solidworks @siemens @surewerx #RockyMountain #WainbeeLimited #B11SpaceChallenge | @base11stem
