Who are we?

Asteria Aerospace is an unincorporated group working to develop powerful rockets and design and build spacecraft to eventually fly to space. Our team competes in challenges such as the International Space Challenge. We design ideas for satellites both simple and complex that could be launched into orbit to complete specific objectives or that could serve as a satellite bus for other missions to use their own instrumentation on. Our local team is also beginning to look into the construction of small cubesats for possible launch within the next few years, a possibility we are extremely excited about. Our dream is for a Human Future connected with space in an efficient way that allows anyone to explore anything they find interesting about spaceflight and science.

Asteria Aerospace excelles in three main categories of work. 

Rocket Design- We are in the process of designing and flying high power sounding rockets. Our current altitude record lies at 994 feet AGL however we expect that to be much higher very soon.

Spacecraft Design- We are proud of our ability to brainstorm, design, and even create full sized software models of spacecraft that could be launched to orbit and even to other planetary bodies to study and complete missions.

Spacecraft Construction- Our newest branch of study. Asteria Aerospace is beginning development in the field of turning designs for small CubeSat spacecraft into fully developed spacecraft with the option of flying them on dedicated rideshare vehicles in the near future. We are excited about the advancements this presents to our team and to all who wish to get into low cost orbital spaceflight. And yes, we do play KSP.
