Rice Eclipse is Rice University's rocket and rocket engine design club, available to all students regardless of major.
Our goals are twofold: to provide our members with unique experiences and learning opportunities not available elsewhere and to produce substantial research useful to the construction of rockets. We pride ourselves on having something for everyone to teach and something for everyone to learn. We also value our relationship with the community and focus on sharing our passion for rocketry, engineering, and space with community groups.
Our current long-term technical objective is to develop and test increasingly powerful rocket engines and rocket vehicles. We are approaching this goal by developing propulsion, structural and aerodynamic, and avionics technologies and skills in parallel. Check out our progress towards this goal in our Spring 2018 Newsletter.
At the moment, the only two things holding us back are gravity and funding. If you would like to help, please visit it our ‘Support Us’ tab.
