On the 31st of March, the members of DARE travelled once more to ASK ‘t Harde as part of the CanSat competition, organised by NEMO. For this launch day, a team of 5 DARE members created three CanSat rockets: Two CanSat V7’s that were used for the satellites and one back up. In these CanSat rockets, […]
After the launch of Stratos II+, several members of DARE were looking into the possibility of designing and building a rocket that could be used as a technology demonstrator for future project Stratos missions. The project was created and called project Aether. With the holidays around the corner, the team behind the project is working […]
Day by day, the launch day for the Small Rocket Project (SRP) is getting closer. Now that the launch day is less than 2 weeks away, the final tests are done in order to make sure that everything is in order for the launch on the 20th of May. On the 22nd of April, the […]
One small step for an egg, one giant leap for Egg-kind. Every year, Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering (DARE) has the Small Rocket Project (SRP). During the SRP, aspiring DARE members have the opportunity to build their own rocket in a small team of 8 to 10 people. Under the supervision of their experienced mentor, they […]
