WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A group of Purdue University students is moving ahead with a project to design and build a spacecraft that will be launched by a new, more environmentally friendly rocket propellant.
The students have partnered with rocket maker Aerojet Rocketdyne to demonstrate that the new propellant can replace hydrazine, a highly toxic fuel that's often used for rocket launches.
The Purdue Green Propellant Suborbital Test will be launched by NASA's Flight Opportunities Program on a commercial suborbital rocket flight.
Such flights allow testing of spaceflight technologies during minutes of weightlessness.
The Purdue flight will test the technical readiness of a new green propellant developed by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory.
