MILLION IN FUNDING
Hybrid rocket engines combine the best elements of both liquid-fueled and solid-fueled rockets, using either a liquid oxidizer and a solid fuel or vice versa. STAR-3D™ hybrid rocket engines use liquid Nitrous Oxide as the oxidizer and solid ABS (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) thermoplastic (a common consumer-grade plastic) as the fuel and combustion chamber. Using a solid fuel allows for greater energy density like that found in a solid rocket motor. A liquid oxidizer allows the engine to be throttled by increasing or decreasing the flow of oxidizer into the combustion chamber, providing the control usually found in a liquid motor. Added to that, hybrid rocket engines are mechanically simple, needing only a handful of moving parts to operate. In short, Rocket Crafters is building a simple rocket engine burning Laughing Gas and Legos.
We’re launching the first in a series of sub-orbital rockets this winter. We intend to announce the first commercial launch of our Intrepid™ rocket following those tests.
