Seds UCSD have been making steady progress on their Vulcan rocket, as reported in 2015 the team successfully ran a kickstart campaign for the rocket but issues were encountered when launching was to take place.
A recent Kickstarter update sheds light on the team’s progress as they move once again towards launch.
- Deployment tests carried out
- 360 degree camera module under construction
- Lox and kero tank reversal, this now puts the lox tank at the bottom of the structure meaning much less boil off as the feed lines can be shorter.
- New main launch valve (pictured)
The team are also trying to work out a live stream for the launch via YouTube, this would make it quite spectacular, especially for us pledges that are across the other side of the world.
Further updates can be found on team member, Bryan Dierkings website, which includes a lot more build pictures and video, you can also follow SEDS UCSD on Facebook or else keep checking back as I find out more information and updates.
