The Future of Rockets: Ecological Propulsion

On November 12 ARCA transported the EcoRocket second stage to its test facility for further dynamic and propulsion system tests.

The test allowed us to gather valuable data regarding the aerospike engine and our ecological water-based propulsion technology. It also provided plenty of data on the vehicle’s dynamic stability and its reaction control system, increasing our confidence in a successful first launch in January 2022.

EcoRocket is using a cost-effective ecological propulsion system that is a major step forward compared to the expensive, polluting and toxic launch vehicles currently in use or under development. In contrast to those, EcoRocket is fully aligned with the European Commission’s environmental policies and objectives.
