A challenge of galactic proportions!

We were split up into three companies called Solaris Flight Systems, Astrodyne Delta and Columbus Aviation. There were also two other companies. In total there were 125 pupils split across the five companies.

The mission brief was to design a spacecraft to travel from Earth to Mars and back again following an Aldrin Cycler route. We had to design the shape of the spacecraft, living quarters for at least 2,500 crew as well as all the facilities that a small town needs like medical, security and education.

Researching new technologies was a big part of the challenge and we had to incorporate these new ideas into our designs.

The day rapidly disappeared and judging soon came around. Each company had to pitch their design to a panel of judges and in front of an audience of about 300 people!

Four Rose Hill pupils were members of the winning company, Columbus Aviation: Max Y7, Josh Y6, Henry Y7 and Henry Y6.

Well done to everyone who took part.
