Rockets & More

We do more than just hang around and talk about how cool space is. We also make stuff, and we’ve got something for everyone. Do you like liquid rockets? PSP Liquids is breaking ground with Boomie Zoomie, the first ever liquid-liquid rocket designed entirely by Purdue students. More of a solids person? Our Student Launch team is a forefront contender for the NASA SLI competition and PSP Solids is mixing their own solid propellants. Plus, we can get you Level One Certified. If you just can’t decide between liquid and solid, check out the all-new SEDS-AIAA Hybrid Team. What’s that? You’re more of a satellites person? Fear not - our SSPI Team has you covered.

PSP Liquids

With over fifty members from all sorts of majors, Purdue Space Program Liquids is a beast of a rocket team. We’re making history with Boomie Zoomie, a LOx/Methane rocket poised to launch by the end of 2018. The rocket is designed to carry a 2.2 payload to 45,000 feet and meet the requirements set out in the 2017-2019 FAR MARS liquid rocket competition. The best part? From design to delivery, it’s all run by students.

SSPI Team

Every year, SEDS USA and SSPI (Space and Satellite Professionals International) team up to host an international satellite design competition. Purdue SEDS has won twice in a row and recently came third. You can read more about the most recent design proposal by clicking “Learn More”. This team was co-led by Tyler Mason (mason67@purdue.edu) and Brian Campana (bcampana@purdue.edu).
