CHEF BOYAPOGEE
[CR19]

Chef Boy Apogee was the third rocket developed and launched by CU InSpace at the 2019 Spaceport America Cup. Chef Boy Apogee was designed to compete in the Spaceport America Cup 10,000 ft COTS Solid competition with a Cesaroni Pro98 4G engine casing, housing an M-1890 motor.

 

The airframe consisted of sections of modified cardboard shipping tubes with sections of student-developed aluminum stringers and reinforcements. This rocket was the first of Carleton's rockets to be recovered successfully, as it softly touched down in the New Mexico desert under its main parachute.
