MACH-22 LAUNCH COMPETITION & CONFERENCE (6).png

Mach-22 Launch Competition and Conference was brought to you by Discover Space UK, UK Launch Services Ltd, Grey Consultants, Machrihanish Airbase Community Company and UKSEDS. The event provided university students an opportunity to develop practical, hands-on mechanical and electronics skills, with industrial technical support provided to the teams remotely.

Based at a future spaceport, Mach-22 included skills workshops supported by national space companies. The rocket-based event saw undergraduate students design, build and launch a rocket and CanSat - a simulation of a real satellite integrated within the volume and shape of a can.

 

Students who successfully participated in the event improved their teamworking skills, practical and mechanical engineering skills, taking part in rocket launches and gaining an insight into careers in the UK Space Sector.
