Brunswick aerospace company sets date for rocket launch
October 1, 2020
(From Times Record) Brunswick-based bluShift Aerospace plans to launch its 20-foot rocket from the former Loring Commerce Centre on October 21. The company hopes the launch will serve as a springboard into building the aerospace industry in Maine. To power rockets, bluShift is manufacturing a biologically-derived fuel made entirely from materials that can be grown on a farm. NASA awarded the group a Small Business Innovation Research grant of about $140,000 which paved the way for MTI and a private investor to pour nearly $200,000 into the launch.
