About

Durham University Students for the Exploration and Development of Space is a society that unites students with a love of space, with a view to develop projects in rocketry, propulsion, robotics and other areas of interest.
The aim is to have a group of members interested in various projects involving amateur rocketry, high altitude ballooning, hobby robotics and more.
Through this, we hope to provide opportunities to students interested in making their career in the space industry.

Robotics Workshops
13th February 2017 -

We are very excited to announce that our first project, Project Hippocrates, will commence on Monday the 13th of February! This project will be a series of weekly workshops (at least four). We will have two rovers available - one 2-wheel drive and one 4-wheel drive - which we will be aiming to have performing tasks as if they were on another planet. The skills involved in this will mainly be electronics and programming, but no prior experience is necessary. This project is free of charge and you don't need to be a member of DUSEDS to take part.

Runaway Rockets and Other Space Exploration Disasters
15th February 2017

On the 15th of February, Prof. John Davies, from the Royal Obsevatory of Edinburgh, will be coming to give a talk - titled "Runaway Rockets and Other Space Exploration Disasters" - to both the SEDS and Astronomical societies at Durham. Prof. Davies is a staff astronomer at the UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UKATC) in Edinburgh and also works as part of the OPTICON Consortium. In this talk, he will be looking back over 50 years of rocketry and space travel, describing how chance, engineering error, and unforeseen circumstances can turn success into failure in the blink of an eye.
