Engineering is not merely knowing and being knowledgeable, like a walking encyclopedia; engineering is not merely analysis; engineering is not merely the possession of the capacity to get elegant solutions to non-existent engineering problems; engineering is practicing the art of the organized forcing of technological change... Engineers operate at the interface between science and society. -Dean Gordon Brown




A hybrid rocket engine was run using Plexiglas and gaseous oxygen. The Plexiglas give us a distinct advantage of actually being able to see the burning and regression of the propellants.

We've run this motor with success. We will be running it again soon and will get photos and video. This setup will be used in the future for some experimentation on hybrid rocket engine propellant regression using vortices to increase efficiency.
