High School to reach Space,

Miami, Florida, United States Miami, Florida, United States

  • About the event

    We are planning to launch a rocket and launchpad into the stratosphere (an altitude of 100,000-110,000 ft) using three 1200 kg high altitude balloons, where the rocket will launch past the Karman Line, the edge of space (328,000 ft, or 62 miles).

         If successful, this endeavor will make us the first group of high school students to reach space. With the help of 360° cameras, we will be able to share the experience with anyone using Virtual Reality goggles or other Virtual Reality setup, thus enabling the public to enjoy the thrill of a Mach 3 ride into space.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Sponsors should support this event because if you do, you are supporting history. Your name/logo can be attached to the rig. The launch will be seen everywhere, therefore anyone who sponsors us will be recognized.

    We are a group of high school students and space enthusiasts and we would like your help in making our dream to get to space a reality. We are attempting to reach space by spring of 2017, with the help of a high powered rocket rig that will be built from scratch.
