A project to design and create a Safe, Cheap and Open source Amateur rocket.
The video Included is our test of the motor of our rocket.
This group is made up of my friends and we have started a company called SMG Industries. Our Goals are to progress cheap space technology and make it easier for everyday people to try to reach space.
We will use this funding to help us buy supplies needed to build and test various prototypes like the one in the video. Once we have built a safe and cheap design we will release it and instructions how to to build it to the public. This should encourage experimentation with space and rocketry.
Our current design is a 3/4 inch PVC pipe body using a Potassium nitrate and sugar mix as the fuel. These both have the benefit of being cheap and safe.
The only problem is that we lack the money to buy various materials to test and design this rocket. If you help fund our group it will help advance amateur
space and rocketry and help us design a open-source cheap rocket.
Any money above 75 dollars will go to design and research for more difficult rocket problems such as hybid-rockets and multi-staged rockets. Anything we complete with these will also become videos and guides.
