KSF Space Foundation collaborated with the Aerospace Department of Kanas University, United States, and developed a suborbital rocket named Jupiter 1. Jupiter is perfect for the most inexpensive CubeSat launch on the market. They are going to launch Jupiter 1 in September 2022.
KSF is proud to introduce its novel development. Jupiter 1 is the cheapest suborbital rocket and can be reused. This new development will help KSF in breaking the barriers to space exploration. When a rocket doesn’t complete its path around a planet or moon to which it is launched is called a suborbital rocket. These rockets have a speed of 2 to 6 times the speed of sound.
The primary goal behind this rocket, Jupiter, was to introduce a cheap alternative for a space mission to help academic institutions like schools and colleges.
Jupiter 1 is the first NGO Mach and 3 suborbital rockets. A suborbital rocket pushes a vehicle wholly or partially with force more than the lift during the rocket-powered phase. Kepler Space Foundation (KSF) has collaborated with Kansas University’s Aerospace Department to develop a suborbital rocket that is good for the cheapest CubeSat launch on the market. It will help educational institutes to complete their space missions at a lower cost.
Jupiter has two stages and can be re-utilized. It’s an effective and economical solution for the cheap launch of CubeSats. The rocket is 4 meters long, has first-rate recovery system aid, and can attain a height greater than 30,000 kilometers. KSF’s new inauguration introducing the low-cost suborbital rocket perfect for cheap CubeSat launch will lead us to a new period of environmentally liable space survey.
Further, Jupiter can carry CubeSats and nanosatellites to space. It can also be used to conduct hardware flight tests to certify it clears all the essential assessments, including thermal, telecommunication, and vibration, before the real orbital flight.
Dr. Kayyali, the president of KSF Space Foundation, mentioned that they are happy to announce their new development, the first suborbital rocket. He further said that Jupiter is perfect for the market’s cheapest CubeSat launch and for testing nanosatellites and hardware to validate it clears all the crucial tests.
