RMIT lifts off

The r is for rocket

RMIT has won the Australian Universities Rocket competition for solid-fuel craft that reach either 10 000ft or 30 000ft carrying a 4kg payload. Team leader James Kirby says they plan to double range every year and develop systems to take the RMIT rocket to the Karman Line, which at 100km is the boundary of space.

The win would position RMIT for a good result in the International University Ranking for Rocketry, if CMM had not just made it up.
