Manchester Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (MANSEDS) is an academic student society at The University of Manchester. We are also affiliated with UK Students for the Exploration of Space (UKSEDS) and the Institute of Physics (IoP).
MANSEDS was formed three years ago as a single team to compete in the UKSEDS National Rocketry Competition. Since then we have grown to over 100 active members participating in our skill-based workshops and contributing to our five ambitious student-led projects: CanSat, lunar rover, Mancunian Balloonian, rocketry and hybrid rocket motor.
Outreach is another important part of what we do as a society. We attend events aimed at schoolchildren and provide them with demonstrations and hands-on activities that teach them about various areas of space and its exploration. We also run an annual trip to the UKSEDS National Student Space Conference to provide our members a chance to learn about the ever-growing space industry and network with industry professionals.
