Purdue Space Program

The up-and-coming premier collegiate rocket project. Purdue Space Program is working on the FAR-MARS competition to design, build, and fly a LOX/LCH4 rocket.  We have designed a full-launch platform and vehicle.   From the mobile methane condenser to cutting edge tank design, we have poured lots of love, coffee, and Matlab code into this fun and exciting project. This year's goal is 45,000 feet.
