ESRA is proud to announce that registration for Spaceport America Cup is now open for all teams! As a reminder, over 90 percent of teams from 2020 chose to extend their registration to the 2021 competition. That means that very few spots are available for new teams to apply. ESRA will be reviewing new entries (teams that were not accepted or did not register for the 2020 event) very carefully and announcing the full team list in accordance with the Integrated Master Schedule available on our website (see http://www.soundingrocket.org/sa-cup-documents--forms.html)
ALL TEAMS MUST REGISTER ON THE NEW 2021 HEROX WEBSITE!
On behalf of the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association (ESRA), welcome. The 2021 Spaceport America Cup is just beginning!
Spaceport America and ESRA Joint Statement Regarding Spaceport America Cup 2020 and COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Many teams have been asking about Spaceport America Cup 2020 and the effects of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. We are aware that many teams across the world are impacted by school closures, travel restrictions, and other precautions to limit the spread of this virus. Spaceport America and the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association (ESRA) continue to monitor events with respect to the outbreak.
At this time, we are not cancelling the Spaceport America Cup competition; however, we are meeting weekly to discuss and take appropriate actions as global events unfold. Please see the linked press release and we will post updates if the competition is affected.
The Experimental Sounding Rocket Association and the Spaceport America Cup Team are pleased to announce the selection of Animal Motor Works as our Primary Rocketry Vendor. Animal Motor Works team members will be onsite throughout the 2018 Spaceport America Cup with their impressive lineup of motors, rocket parts, electronics, building supplies and expertise to ensure our teams have the best opportunity for having a successful launch.
The GoPro Footage is in and here is our new video for the 2017 Spaceport America Cup. This video was filmed entirely on the Hero 5 and Hero 6 Cameras.
If your team was videoed by the GoPro crew, feel free to contact ESRA and we can get you the video files.
