The Spaceport America Cup and International Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IIREC) are currently underway at Spaceport America.
110 teams from 11 countries will be launching their rockets, be it solid, hybrid or liquid to target altitude of 10,000 and 30,000ft.
One particular rocket to watch out for is the ULA intern rocket, Future Heavy, which as outlined in the graphic below is huge!
Testing of the Dynamic pressure regulation system that will be used on Nexø II.
Video Caption: In this video Flemming Nyboe explains about the dynamic pressure regulation (DPR) system and the adjustments needed to transfer the system from test stand use to flight use.
The test is performed using demineralised water and compressed atmospheric air, this video will show how.
Copenhagen Suborbitals is the world’s only manned, amateur space program, 100% crowdfunded and nonprofit. In the future, one of us will fly to space on a home built rocket.

Looks like the team has been making steady progress, the flight must not be too far away. If you know leave a comment below or hit me up on twitter!
Updated 21/6/2017: At posting the team uploaded a video of their 4th test of the engine, which judging from the team’s reaction was a success!
Video Caption: The Stratos III propulsion team was facing some issues when the engine got a burn through after the first two tests. Check out this third engine test video and see for yourself with what engine we want to take back the altitude record!
In this video, Joe goes over the recent work on his launch pad and his continued tuning of his control algorithms for thrust vector control.
