At the Montreal Space Symposium last month, aerospace engineer Adam Trumpour announced the Canada Rocket Innovation Challenge. The competition is part of a larger movement to bring together students, researchers and industry while also spurring innovation and creating more opportunities within the country for aspiring aerospace engineers.
Trumpour was instrumental in developing the Base 11 Space Challenge, which five Canadian rocketry teams entered, and this new competition will compliment that challenge.
“We were blown away by the amount of enthusiasm for the Base 11 Space Challenge that came out of Canada. Seeing how much raw rocketry talent is there, I’m excited to partner with the Launch Canada competition to help unlock that talent,” said Landon Taylor, CEO of Base11.
