With just over four months until the most anticipated rocketry event for 2015, the Australian Rocketry Thunda Down Under 2015 team have commenced the countdown campaign “Get Your Butt to Thunda!”.

Every couple of weeks until the event, we will ramp up the status of different elements of ARTDU2015. From equipment to rocket builds, site access and logistics, we hope to cover off any and all queries you may have.
