The New Space Race

An article from the New York Post, “New space race is happening on our college campuses” looks at the different universities in the US that are all pitted against each other in friendly competition to be the first student group to send a rocket to space.

I have been following a few of the more capable teams, notably BURPG and USC Rocket lab, USCRPL have come close but have had problems with their solid rocket motors and recently BURPG have switched from a hybrid rocket motor to a liquid-fuelled engine, this is due to be test fired soon. Watch these two teams as the race heats up!
