The world’s premier undergraduate research group for experimental rocket technologies.
We are focused on pushing the state-of-the-art in rocket technology
Armed with determination and the goal of putting a scratch-built rocket into space, USCRPL was the world’s first student organization to successfully launch and recover an entirely student-designed and student-fabricated rocket (Traveler IV) past the Karman line, the recognized boundary of space at 100 km (328,084 ft). Now, the lab pushes forward with new goals, both in our atmosphere and beyond.
