Abstract

Since the launch of Sputnik in the 1950s, scale rockets began to be used around the world so that people interested in the space sector had access both in terms of cost, safety and manufacturing. At the facilities of the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC), a project to design, build and launch the experimental rocket called Tetris was developed. For its design, the Openrocket Software was used, and its components are: the warhead, fuselage, 3 trapezoidal fins, a parachute attached to the rocket structure and the warhead, the type I-J engines and a CanSat-type satellite with parachutes as Useful load. Tetris was built with fiberglass material in the Aerospace Engineering laboratories of FCITEC-UABC. Two launches were successfully carried out at the Laguna Salada facilities located in the state of Baja California, one carrying a can with stones as a weight as a payload and the other launch containing a CanSat. The maximum height reached by the rocket was 595.8 m a.s.l. (meters above sea level) in a time of 10 s, from an initial platform placed at 16 m a.s.l. The main interest in doing these projects lies in manipulating new materials, innovating the techniques used in manufacturing and, above all, acquiring experience to in the future begin the space age in Mexico as it was in the 60s and 70s.
