 Aspirespace Rocket Engineering Society

Getting Involved!

Aspirespace is a member-based organisation and as such it relies on the continuing support of volunteers and the generosity of individuals and companies. If you believe that access to space should not be limited to the lucky few, but should be available to all people who wish to push back the frontiers of human experience and if you would like to be a part of the ‘new space’ programme, why not join Aspirespace!

We are looking for people like you. Men and women who are interested in space and space-related technology; people who want to spend their spare time working on one of the most exciting engineering projects in the country.

I don't understand rocket science!

Don't worry,  it's mostly about plumbing! Even if you don't know the first thing about rockets - the best way to learn is to get involved in one of our projects under the tutelage of our professional rocketeers. There are also plenty of non-technical jobs that are essential to our success, e.g. organising, sponsorship, and publicity.

Where are you based?

This is how Aspirespace works now: we have members scattered all over the U.K. in Glasgow, Nottingham, and Greater London for example, as well as North and South America. Contact us, and we’ll try and pair you up with members in your area. Most of our design work, however, can be done remotely from home via email and Skype. If you have a garage or shed that could be transformed into a workshop, so much the better!

Perhaps you might like to form a student group to work with us. We have lots of research to do that can make rewarding and successful academic student projects; we have a great track record in this area.

I don't have enough spare time!

Neither do we! Our main core of members are professional engineers in their unpaid overtime, and crumbling home renovation, stage of life; we do what rocketry we can, but we could do with more help, even just a small amount more.

If you have any questions, or think that you might be able to assist us in any way (we are always looking for materials and equipment) please contact us.
