The sequel to LURA’s Gryphon I project: design, build and fly a high-power rocket that is capable of breaking the UK Altitude Record.

The Gryphon II is the second high altitude rocket designed by LURA. After one year of development, the next generation Gryphon rocket features multiple novel elements, making it the most complex rocket that we were able to launch successfully. 

We aim to use the Gryphon II to beat the UKRA Amateur Rocketry Altitude Record. The current record was set on US territory. LURA aims to take a step further and launch above 13 km from UK soil.

The Gryphon II project is currently ongoing. We are in the process of updating this page with the latest news from our April launch.
