Bifrost: NTNU's Ambitious Leap Towards Space Exploration

Propulse NTNU - Team Bifrost

Bifrost is not just another rocket; it's a symbol of NTNU's commitment to pioneering space exploration. Launched by the student-driven Propulse NTNU, Bifrost stands tall as the institution's most significant physical rocket to date. Its unveiling on September 28th was a momentous occasion, marking the institution's ambitious participation in The European Rocketry Challenge 2023. But it's not merely about competing; it's about excelling in the vast expanse of space.

The rocket, with its metal 3D-printed engine, boasts a unique combination of pure alcohol and liquid nitrous oxide, propelling it to speeds of up to Mach 0.8. Designed and built entirely by the student community, this technological marvel stands 5 meters tall and is expected to soar to an altitude of 3,000 meters.

Bifrost's payload is equally noteworthy. It will carry a test model from the satellite project Orbit NTNU, designed to house a plant in microgravity conditions. Named after the Norse mythological bridge, Bifrost symbolizes a bridge to a promising future, embodying new possibilities and ambitions.

And this is just the beginning! Propulse NTNU is already preparing for their next launch in 2024, aiming even higher – 10,000 meters from Norwegian soil.
