Gilmour Space’s Rocket Test

The world's most powerful single-port hybrid rocket engine has been test fired at Gilmour Space's test lab on the Gold Coast. The engine will power the first and second stages of the Eris orbital vehicle which is slated for a 35-kilo payload launch in 2022.

“We are delighted by this successful hot-fire test, which demonstrates Gilmour’s progress towards a successful orbital launch in 2022,” said Rajat Kulshrestha, co-founder and CEO of Space Machines Company. “Together with Space Machines Company, important sovereign launch and in-space transport capabilities for Australia are becoming a reality.”
