This is our most recent area of involvement. We have done a number of projects in the past, including high-altitude ballooning and model rocketry. In previous years, we have competed in model rocketry competitions, deploying micro flight computers and sensor payloads.

National Student Space Conference

The annual two-day National Student Space Conference (NSSC) takes place in March, and is the premier event for students interested in space. It’s an opportunity to meet with academics and professionals from across the country to network, share knowledge, and discuss the challenges within the space sector.

It generally features talks by leading space science and industry figures, a careers fair, and opportunities to take part in discussions and networking. Past speakers include the CEO of the UK Space Agency, ESA’s Director of Human Spaceflight and Robotic Exploration, and astronauts Paolo Nespoli and Tim Peake.
