UROC HellFire 24
August 1, 2019 - August 4, 2019Free
The Utah Rocket Club (UROC) is a regional club made up of members from NAR Section 523 and the Tripoli Utah Prefecture. The Utah Rocket Club is a “not for profit” corporation.
Over the past 24 years, UROC has been hosting the HellFire High Power Launch (LDRS 17 in 1998 took its place). The event is held on the Bonneville Salt Flats on the border of Utah and Nevada. The Salt Flats offer the perfect setting for High Power Rocketry due to their vast and endless, flat expanse. The event takes place August 1st-4th, 2019.
Though HellFire is technically an amateur launch, we’re talking serious rocketry here. Participants from around the country launch rockets ranging from foot-tall wonders to towering monsters that weigh in at over 100 pounds, feature high-tech electronics, use a propellant similar to that used on the space shuttle, and lift off with hundreds of pounds of pure thrust.
Spectator admission to HellFire is free and the public is welcome to come watch.
