To characterize our BPM100 injector, we needed to go bigger than any other homemade project has gone before. The Spica rocket engine will burn through 50 liters of propellants each second. To simulate that on Read more…
After increasing the hole diameter of our swirl injectors, we need to confirm how that changes their mass flow. Jeppe guides you through how to do just that.
After numerous leak tests and sealing tape applications, Adrian finally gets to see his reaction control system work.
Our intern Adrian walks us through his power supply electronics for his RCS thruster test setup.
A quick update on how we modify our swirl injectors to test how larger propellant holes influence their output.
This is a follow up video to our June 29th Spica space capsule ballute and parachute system tests. Here we talk about the data we got from those jumps. If you haven’t seen the first Read more…
Our intern Adrian guides you through his project of a Reaction Control System for our crewed Spica space capsule. This system will enable our spacecraft to orient and stabilize itself in the vacuum of space.
