Portal Space

A student organization at the University of Oslo building and launching Norway's first liquid-fueled rocket.

 

We are a technical student organization at the University of Oslo. We give students the opportunity to work on real space-related projects without prior experience. Here, theory and practice is combined to solve real problems fast and cheap.


The new generation of orbital rockets is rapidly reducing the cost of access to space. We hope to prepare and inspire you to take your part in the new space industry.

We don’t know what the future of space travel will look like, all we know is that we want to be a part of it.

Meet us at V204 in the Physics Building at University of Oslo. 

 
 

About

Mission

Build, launch and recover a liquid propellant rocket to 9 km altitude by the summer of 2022.

Vision

Prepare students for a future in space 

We are a student organisation who began our project after a trip to Andøya for CaNoRock 2020. We were inspired to push Norway's boundaries in space and fuel the next generation with passion for space. This is where we began and where we will launch Norway's first liquid - fueled rocket.

Our Departments

Structures

They are responisble for the majority of the structural components related to our work. This includes designing, producing and testing things as the test stand, propellant tanks, valves and plumbing, rocket body and much more. 


The members in this departement gets hands-on experience with 3D design, metalworking, handeling of cryogenic oxygen and problemsolving with programing. They are also exposed to working in a large, crossdisiplinary team.  

Electronics

They are responisble for controling every part of our rocket. This is done by placing sensors on our system such that it can be monitored and the other teams can evaluate the systems performance. 

They make and test the electronics needed for the engine and related systems, inertial measurement and navigation, telemetry, and power supply. 

The electronics department work on sensors, microcontrollers, embedded CPP, and digital signal processing in a team environment. In this department, memebers get to both expand their knowledge of electronics and practice implementing electronics in advanced applications.

Propulsion

The Propulsion Department designs, builds and tests our rocket engine Reodor. The majority of the work is centered around the combustion chamber, cooling, injection of propellants and integration with the rocket. The department has to come up with clever ways to work with the constraints we have in cost and manufacturability while making a functioning liquid-fueled rocket engine.

Through this work, members learn the bulk of rocket theory, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, problem solving with programming, metalworking, welding and much more. 

Operations

The Operations department is responsible for making sure that the entire organization is running smoothly. The operations department has a range of tasks within marketing and HR. By securing funds, creating digital content, and taking care of the members, they will bring the organization closer to launching a rocket. 


Through this work, members gain experience with cooperation in a diverse team, leadership, and creativity.
