Cosmic Research is a non-profit association dedicated to the development of rockets with scientific applications and to revive the passion for space and educate the new generations of students in rocket science.
With this endevour, since 2017 we have participated in regional and national CanSat competitions as rocket launchers in order to inspire kids to pursue technical and specially space related studies.
A CanSat is a can-sized satellite loaded with a simple experiment designed by a group of highschool students. The objective of the experiment has to be as imaginative and useful as possible.
Since 2017 we’ve been developping our own custom CanSat launchers. Always working to ensure safety, reliability, efficency and reusability.
With our homemade rocket – Christa -, we can deliver up to 6 CanSats reaching velocities of 450 m/s and altitudes over 1500 m.
The keys of our Christa Rocket are:
The modular design allows for swapping of damaged rocket parts after each flight ensuring safety, reusability and a cost-effectiveness.
A certified motor is used to ensure good and predictable burn characteristics.
Christa is capable of carrying and deploying 6 CanSats at each flight.
Professional launch providers
As an assocaciation, we regularly develop these and other educational activities targeted at the young. By doing so, we provide junior students opportunities to learn about space and basic engineering.
Since 2017, Cosmic Research has been a launch provider for the regional ESA CanSat Competitions taking place in Spain and we have launched 116 CanSats .
