About Us


Aims and Objectives:

  1. To hold astronomy and space themed socials for like-minded people to revel in the wonders of the universe, regardless of the discipline they are studying.
  2. To complete our radio telescope project, XRT-C, and take radio astronomy trips down to Cornwall, as well as launching our HAB project and encouraging and supporting our members to develop new projects.
  3. To hold astronomy and space themed talks and seminars throughout the year on topics related to space, astronomy and astrophysics. On this topic, we are hoping to run a second year of our Space: Exe Conference in term 2.

Space:Exe is a new society for anyone interested in extra-curricular Astrophysics, Rocketry and Space Science.

We're in the process of building a 4.5m Radio Telescope in Cornwall - see www.xrt-c.co.uk - and are part of the national space society UKSEDS (www.ukseds.org).

We're planning an exciting range of activities throughout the year, such as finishing and commisioning our Radio Telescope, attending the National Student Space Conference and possibly building rockets! We host regular socials such as stargazing nights and pub quizs. Last year we hosted our first ever Space Science and Astronomy conference with speakers such as Ian Jones, CEO of Goonhilly EarthStation, NASA ambassador John Maclean, Omar Jamil Met office senior scientist and many more. We also love getting involved in as many science outreach events as we can.  

Join our society and the facebook group to get involved! After joining you'll be added to mailing lists for build days throughout the year to Caradon where you can get hands on and be part of the team that completes the XRT-C.
