Aerospace Engineering Seminar: A Deep Dive into ASRI’s Rocket Research Activities

Join us for a set of presentations by engineering personnel in the Aerospace Systems Research Institute. The seminar will comprise brief talks of 10 minutes each, covering topics such as the flight performance of a Phoenix hybrid rocket, the design and ground-testing of UKZN’s powerful ABLE liquid rocket engine, the development of electronics payloads for suborbital rockets, and the phenomenon of slosh and novel chemical propellants. ASRI’s rocket scientists will introduce you to the inspiring world of supersonic flight and give attendees an idea of what it takes to design and build the mightiest of the flying machines.
