Mach-23 Launch Competition

Mach-X Launch Competition

The Mach-X series is brought to you by Discover Space UK, Exotopic, Machrihanish Airbase Community Company (MACC) and UKSEDS. The event will give university students an opportunity to develop practical, hands-on mechanical and electronics skills, with industrial technical support provided to the teams remotely.

Based at a future spaceport, the Mach in-person events will include skills workshops supported by national space companies. The rocket-based event will see undergraduate students design, build and launch a rocket and CanSat - a simulation of a real satellite integrated within the volume and shape of a can.


Students who successfully participate in the event will improve their team working skills, practical and mechanical engineering skills, take part in rocket launches and gain an insight into careers in the UK Space Sector.

Registrations for Mach-24 will open soon!
