Crusade Rocketry

Crusade Rocketry

Crusade Rocketry was formed in 2017 when amateur high-power rocketry enthusiasts Martyn Turner, Russ Strand, and Keith Strand decided they wanted to build and launch something big…. really big.

They are planning to build and launch a full-scale replica of the Black Knight rocket that was a product of the early British Space Program. While their Black Knight replica will not reach space, it is expected to fly to several thousand feet and provide for a truly memorable experience.

The path to this goal, culminating in a launch, is intended to honour the legacy of the British Space Program, as well as inspiring young people in education to pursue STEM subjects.

Come and visit the team at Maker Central 2019 to find out more about the project, amateur rocketry in the UK, and how they as makers go about designing and building these remarkable creations.
