The RIT Launch Initiative is a multidisciplinary student organization that designs and manufactures rocket technologies for research and competitions as a way to prepare students for careers in aerospace. The student organization recently placed first for flight performance and 11th overall in the Spaceport America Cup, an intercollegiate rocket engineering competition held in New Mexico. RIT was one of 100-plus universities from around the world competing in the competition.The team’s L3 high-powered rocket soared 9,990 feet, the closest and most accurate altitude in the competition under the 10,000-ft. category. RIT’s rocketeers—undergraduate students who build rockets that resemble those used for satellite and space launches—also won separate awards for proficiency, safety protocols and procedures. More.
