Spaceflight Society is an engineering and outreach society, open to anyone who wants to get involved. We carry out high altitude balloon and model rocketry launches, alongside designing our own rockets, working closely with schools to teach science and engineering. There are opportunities to get involved with electronics, rockets, programming, radio communication, engineering, outreach and physics.

Southampton University Spaceflight Society (SUSF) is a group of students with a shared passion for space science and engineering. Along with projects ranging from building rocket engines to launching high altitude balloons, we also engage in outreach events with local schools to inspire the next generation of students to pursue careers in STEM.
