Registration Opens for AURC 2020

The Australian Universities Rocket Competition 2020 has now officially opened team registrations. The competition will again consist of two man categories; requiring student teams to design, build and launch a sounding rocket (and recover it successfully) to either 10,000ft or 30,000ft, carrying a 2kg+ scientific payload of cube-sat format. This year comes with new exciting changes and opportunities, including a challenge set up by the Royal Australian Air Force, additional payload challenges and the opportunity for international teams to compete in Australia in the week of September the 28th 2020. Full rules, requirements and timeline documentation will be released in due course, with the very first deliverable being the selection of motor.
