Spaceport America Cup was virtual this year due to covid travel restrictions. It was entered by 75 universities from 16 nations.

The USYD Rocketry Team took out second place in the 30k' COTS Flight category, and third place in the Payload design category. Congratulations to all involved 8) .

This is the team I mentor and they do make my job easy :wink: . They are a very capable and competent bunch of people.

Congratulations also to the Monash University team from here in Melbourne, who took out top honours in the Modelling and Simulation category of the competition.

Nice to see Australian teams featuring so well in these international competitions.
