This year’s competition rocket has made good progress over the month of March. With the design finalized we were able to begin working on parts for the fin cans and electronics bay. This included fiber-glassing sheets of wood and cutting out fins for the upper stage using the fiberglass reinforced wood with our CNC mill. Additionally we cut and sanded most of the wooden components for the fin cans and electronics bay.

This year, SpaceVision was held in Boston, Massachusetts at Boston University. We have few pictures, but they capture what our members who attended the conference enjoyed most!
The trip began very late in the day, most students already exhaust from midterms, but catching up on what sleep they could to prepare for the excitement of SpcaeVision.
