The Buckeye Space Launch Initiative

Status: Active - Established
Purpose Statement: The Buckeye Space Launch Initiative (BSLI) is an interdisciplinary organization of 80+ ambitious students with a shared vision of student-led spaceflight. Our mission is to launch high powered rockets and foster the growth of talented individuals from diverse backgrounds in pursuit of reaching space. This year we have two competition teams attending the Spaceport America Cup in June 2017. We also have special projects regarding propulsion systems, avionics, aerodynamics, control systems, structures, and manufacturing techniques for a 100k high altitude rocket.
