Young engineers build Mach 2 rocket, set sights on space

Posted: Oct 20, 2011 | 4 min 14 sec

After a successful Mach2 launch at the LDRS XXX competition in Argonia, Kansas last September, ASU’s Daedalus Astronautics student group has set a new goal for the organization – build a rocket that can reach space. Daedalus members Christopher Karpurk, Evan Olson and Matthew Summers discuss the science, research and sheer fun of building rockets.

To find out the official results for Daedalus' rocket drag race at the 2011 LDRS competition watch Large Dangerous Rocket Ships hosted by Kari Byron at 10 p.m., Oct. 30, on the Science Channel.

Filmed by Jeanne Schaser and Esteban Da Silva. Edited by Chakris Kussalanant.
