Get SEDS UNLV to Spaceport America

We are Students for the Exploration and Development of Space at UNLV: 

SEDS UNLV is a team of students who are passionate about promoting the education of space and empowering individuals to make an impact in the pursuit of space exploration. Our organization helps students develop technical as well as leadership skills through projects, competitions, and conferences. 

More about SEDS.


Our Mission, Spaceport America Cup:

Spaceport America Cup is the largest international collegiate rocketry competition challenging students to design, build, and launch high-powered rockets. Over 70 teams from around the globe have been selected (including us!) to compete. The competition will be held from June 18 - 22 in southern New Mexico.

More about Spaceport America Cup.


We Need Your Help!

This year is SEDS UNLV's first rocket competition and we would like to show the world what UNLV students can offer the space industry. Our team has been working hard over the past several months in designing and building our rocket. We have already constructed a bulk of our rocket, however additional funding is necessary to complete it. We are also in need of funding for travel expenses to get our team to the competition.


Meet Our Rocket, The Love Ship:

The Love Ship is a high-powered rocket over 6 feet long and 6 inches in diameter, and our entry into the Spaceport America Cup competition. It is estimated to reach a maximum apogee of 10,000 feet carrying an 8.8 pound active payload to be deployed.
