KSF Space Foundation Sets New Benchmark for Affordable Space Rocket


KSF Space Foundation announced the JUPITER 1, the first suborbital rocket made in collaboration with the Aerospace Department at Kansas University in the USA.

KSF Space Foundation is proud to announce a reusable and affordable suborbital rocket, JUPITER 1. With this rocket launch, KSF Space Foundation is set to reduce the barriers to space exploration. The mission aims to develop a space mission with an affordable budget for universities, colleges, and schools and provide the cheapest Cubesat Kit for education outreach in the market.

JUPITER 1 is the first NGO Mach +3 Suborbital rocket. It was made in collaboration with the Aerospace Department at Kansas University and KSF Space Foundation. The JUPITER 1 rocket is 2 stages and reusable, making it cost-effective for institutions and universities. It is 4 meters long and supported by excellent recovery systems and has ability to exceed apogee 30.000 KM altitude. The upcoming rocket launch will revolutionize sustainable space exploration with an affordable rocket launch.

In addition, this rocket allows carrying Cubesat / Nanosatellites and hardware flight testing to ensure that it would pass all necessary tests like thermal, vibration, and telecommunication before an actual orbital flight situation and get a certification.

“We are happy to introduce our 1st suborbital rocket “JUPITER 1” dedicated to Cubesat / Nanosatellites and hardware flight testing to ensure your satellite would pass all major necessary tests,” Dr. El Kayyali president of KSF Space Foundation stated. In addition, the next test flight of the JUPITER 1 rocket is scheduled for September 2022 from Utah, USA.

About KSF Space Foundation

KSF Space Foundation is a US-based non-profit organization that supports various areas, including connecting those who have experience in developing, building, and completing small satellite missions/CubeSat/nanosatellite with those with limited experience in nanosatellite technology. This way, it enables worldwide institutions and organizations to utilize all available components in the market to realize the idea of space exploration. Other than that, they will not sacrifice a significant portion of their budget in developing their cubstat/nanosatellite project. For more information, please visit https://ksf.space/jupiter-rocket/
