NEBULA

 Its name refers to the birthplace of the stars, as the Nebula project aims to renew the team.

 The main innovation brought was the creation of a Payload sector. Our prototype has to carry a load, for example, an experiment.

 In addition to the Payload sector, we also had technological innovations. Nebula is made of carbon fiber and 3D printing, this allows the fabrication to be faster, more accurate, more resistant at the same time it is light. Additionally, its engine will be manufactured from aluminum (6061-T6 in casing and 6061-T651 in bulkhead) which is considerably lighter than steel. Normally, the engine represents 40% of the total mass, so the decrease certainly increases the prototype’s efficiency. The nozzle is also different, in the “bell” format, which is more efficient than previous models.

 Nebula will has telemetry integrated with GPS, in other words, we will be able to recover our rocket more easily. Also has an altimeter that is responsible for measuring and recording the height and signaling the apogee for the parachute ejection.
