HyImpulse unveils Mission Patch

HyImpulse has unveiled the symbolic mission patch and resounding mission statement for its inaugural launch – the first private German rocket launch. Inspired by Alan Shepard ´s iconic words, the phrase "Light this candle" encapsulates the passionate anticipation and exhilaration surrounding this historic moment.


The mission patch features the SR75 rocket majestically ascending beneath the twinkling Southern Cross constellation, against the backdrop of the Australian sky. Symbolizing unity and collaboration, the flags of Germany, the United Kingdom, the European Union, and Australia orbit the design, representing the international support and cooperation fueling this endeavor.


Currently, the rocket SR75 from HyImpulse and its ground support equipment are well on the way close to the coast of Australia with the final destination for the cargo harbor in Adelaide. The equipment and also the HyImpulse launch team are well on time for the launch window that will open end of April. The launch team will arrive mid-April at the Koonibba test range which is operated by Southern Launch.

About rocket SR75

HyImpulse's SR75, a revolutionary single-stage rocket powered by a groundbreaking hybrid rocket engine, will take flight. This innovative technology utilizes paraffin wax, a safe and readily available fuel, aiming to make access to space more cost-effective and sustainable. The foundation for this flight includes the motor test campaigns that we did at our test site on the Shetland Islands.

With this technology and this flexibility, HyImpulse plans to launch 4 SR75 rockets from various launch sites by mid 2025.
