What is UQ Space?
UQ Space is a student society that aims to provide all its members with hands-on experience in rocketry, aerospace and interdisciplinary engineering. We design, manufacture and launch high-powered rockets, scientific payloads and all associated space technology, and represent the University at an international level. We have competed in both categories at the inaugural Australian Universities Rocket Competition (AURC) in 2019, launching Project Athena and Project Minerva to 10081ft and 30800ft respectively. It’s hard work – but we have a great time doing it, and can now call ourselves the No.1 in Australia & New Zealand!
