Sugar Shot to Space - Synopsis
Rocket Science is all of art, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics and soothsaying. Of some 50 Sugar Shot to Space participants, about 3/4ths of us are Americans. One might aptly call us a western amateur volunteer space project, with Australia in the “far-west”.
In June of 2005, none of us had any idea of that next month the topic would change from our usual experimental low-energy rocket motor discussions. On July 11th, 2005, our member from Slovenia asked; “I'm wondering if it would be possible to build a rocket capable of reaching space (100km), which would be powered by sugar propellant and how should this rocket look like.”
After a few calculations, a few days, and the thought of it, most of us had stepped forward as volunteers and our project had a name: Sugar Shot to Space.
