CranSEDS is Cranfield’s local chapter of UKSEDS(UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space), made up of students who are passionate about Space Exploration and are looking to fulfil the challenge of ESA’s cosmic vision 2015-2025 where “Today’s science rests on the contribution of every citizen”. Whether through competing in various competitions to design the best rockets or the more ambitious rovers or running and attending events where the current engineers of the space industry pass on their experiences to inspire the next wave; the members of CranSEDS are taking their first small steps towards their future careers where they will hope to contribute to the next giant leap forward into the final frontier.
