The STR-Rocket Series

The Space Team Rockets, STR in short, were the very first projects of the TU Wien Space Team. As the years went by, the rockets grew bigger and more ambitious. Today we can proudly look back to dozens of successful rocket launches in France, Germany and Poland. The next edition – STR-10 – will perform its first launch in 2020.



The C’Space competition is a rocketry competition organized by the French space agency CNES and their organization Planète-Sciences, which takes place during the summer months in France. Since the 70s students from around the world take part in order to present their projects and see their hard work lift off.
During the C’Space week students not only have the chance to launch their own experimental rockets, but also to launch mini rockets, atmospheric balloons, and CanSats with experiments.
