BREAKING NEWS: MAKING HISTORY

Space Concordia Space Health Division's Micro2 Project Enters SEDS-CANADA'S CAN-RGX Competition


The Space Health Division we will be participating in a parabolic flight to test the MICRO2 experiment, a project conducted in pursuit of better understanding the human immune response through changed induced by reduced gravity, as well as stress on genes induced by hypergravity. MICRO2’s experimental design consists of using microfluidic platforms which can non-invasively mimic similar effects on the Saccharomyces Cerevesiaie II yeast cell, a eukaryotic cell which shares many common features to the human cell. Hypotheses in the current experiment may contribute to understanding the effects of gravitational forces on human cells, and consequently, factors in cell reproduction.



Space Concordia Rocketry Division Fires The World's Most Powerful Student-Built Rocket Engine


Space Concordia’s Rocketry division has been building bigger and better sounding rockets since 2014. Starting with altitudes of 10,000ft., the team participated in the Spaceport America Cup, the world’s largest rocketry competition, consisting of over 125 international universities. In summer 2018, SC launched their first supersonic rocket, Supersonice, with a solid motor to a target altitude of 30,000ft, carrying a sophisticated fluid dynamic experiment onboard. As Concordia University’s first supersonic vehicle, the rocket reached speeds of over 2400km/h in just 3 seconds. The team triumphed: winning 1st place in both the Advanced Category and the Space Dynamics Payload Challenge over universities such as Stanford, MIT, Caltech and McGill.

Now the Rocketry Division is shooting even higher.



Originally competing in the Base 11 Space Challenge, an intercollegiate challenge to develop a single-stage liquid fuel rocket to surpass the Karman line at 100 km of altitude and get to space, SC Rocketry aims to become the first student team to build a rocket that will reach space. Despite a global pandemic, the team has already built most of the flight vehicle, and has successfully tested the rocket engine in the summer of 2021. The rocket engine test was a world-record setting event, as it was the largest rocket engine ever fired by students.

THE SOCIETY’S MISSION IS TWOFOLD:

  • First, to provide a platform of end-to-end projects where students can exercise their passion for space.

  • Second, to inform individuals of all ages about the space industry and to inspire the next generation of Canadian space advocates.

  • Space Concordia makes a continuous effort to be more than just your average student society with a typical competition-based structure; we aim to be similar to a space agency where we show our expertise not only through the projects we develop, but also through the actions we do on a larger scale to benefit society as a whole.
