Inspiring the younger generation
We believe that it is not only important to do this but it is a privilege for us to engage and educate the next generation.
Skyrora frequently get involved where we can, we regularly engage with communities, schools and families promoting the future of space in the UK and encouraging our younger generation to be excited about what space can offer in the future, so they can be part of it should they wish.
At Skyrora, we use parachute recovery systems to enable the reuse of certain rocket parts. Take a look at how these parachute recovery systems work by taking part in our parachute activity here! The science behind Skyrora’s parachute activity This parachute experiment provides an examination of how a parachute recovery system allows for the safe landing of Skyrora’s test rockets. When the parachute is released, the weight pulls down on the strings and opens a large surface area of material that uses air resistance to slow it down.
