This is a page of the 1st Latvian high power rocketry
mission. The goal of the project is to develop a simple and affordable solution of launching sounding rockets into space (above the Karman line of 100 km) from a stratospheric platform at 25-30km altitude. Thus this team would
become the 2nd amateur team in the World to achieve this with high power
amateur rocket. Slogan of the mission is: "First hundred kilometres of Latvia in to the Space!". Our approach is to build a small rocket that can be launched from a stratospheric platform at altitude of 30km. Detailed video presentation below:
