 Aspirespace Rocket Engineering Society

Aspirespace is an enabling international rocket engineering society based in the U.K. that trains up the next generation of rocket engineers and enthusiasts through hands-on rocketry projects, supervised and safety-monitored by professional rocket engineers.

We have three decades of experience in the design and construction of small rocket vehicles and associated hardware. Our activities include the design, construction and testing of rocket engines, rocket vehicles, and spaceplane prototypes, designed to explore new ways of cheaply accessing the fringes of Space.

The society is a membership-based organisation. Our members are engineers, scientists and other enthusiasts with an interest in building and operating rockets and space hardware, with the common goal of training for the new commercial Space industry.

Please join us on our quest!

To find out more about this exciting society, take a journey through our web site by selecting the links above. We update our technical papers regularly and there is a wealth of information here for the enthusiast.
