CRYOSPHERE – ROAD TO LAUNCH
Over a decade ago, Project Cryosphere embarked on an ambitious endeavor to construct our most formidable rocket to date, marking a significant milestone in our 60-year history. The outcome is a behemoth of a student rocket, the EX-3. Generating an astounding thrust exceeding one ton, our aim is to soar to a flight altitude of 35 kilometers, surpassing the height of Mount Everest approximately four times. With this we also aim to beat the existing world record for cryogenic rockets developed by students. Powering our rocket is a hybrid engine fueled by liquid oxygen (LOX) and hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB), propelling the rocket to a velocity three times faster than the speed of sound, reaching a maximum acceleration of 8g.
Today, we are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated launch campaign for Project Cryosphere. After months of dedicated hard work, we are delighted to share that the EX-3 is now completed, representing a significant milestone in our mission. The launch site chosen for this momentous occasion is the Friends of Amateur Rocketry (FAR) facility, nestled within the awe-inspiring Mojave Desert in California. This picturesque location provides an ideal environment for the EX-3 to take flight, offering vast open spaces and optimal safety measures for the launch of such a massive rocket.
Excitement is building as our dedicated team prepares to embark on this transnational adventure. We are thrilled to announce that our team will be arriving in the United States on July 2nd 2023, kicking off the monumental launch campaign. As we stand on the precipice of this historic moment, we invite you to join us in witnessing the culmination of years of hard work, ingenuity, and perseverance as we eagerly anticipate the long-awaited launch of our rocket!
