What if we built a rocket that is better than a NASA or commercially available rocket? What if we did it with students?

Starscraper is a 30 foot-long, 1,100 pound suborbital rocket that can carry 100 pounds of experiments 435,000 feet into space and return gently to earth. But beyond that, Starscraper is an educational breakthrough. It’s a project that allows us to figure out how to do things never thought possible to do at the student level, which has important implications in all disciplines.
Our vision is to launch Starscraper on July 25, 2015. We believe that the Kickstarter community can help us close the gap on funding to realize this vision. Check out Update #4 for more information about how you can design a payload for the rocket that will be launched into space and brought back to Earth.
