ABOUT



Founded in 1992, The Embry-Riddle Future Space Explorers and Developers Society is dedicated to providing hands-on experience in space exploration and related topics for students here at ERAU. While focused at our core on rocketry, our projects have branches into numerous research projects spanning a variety of aspects within the Aerospace Industry. The club also currently holds the world record for highest altitude university vehicle with project Icarus, which launched in 2007 and acheived an altitude of 37.8 miles.

As ERAU's premier rocketry club, we encourage ambition and innovation in our members, and welcome students of all skill levels to learn and build with our close-knit team of passionate researchers.
