About Us:

Rocket Assisted Free-Fall is a project under the Make to Innovate Class here at Iowa State. RAFF aims to provide a service to customers and research projects by sending a payload up in our rocket and simulating zero-gravity on the way down. The project was created in 2019 and is led by a team of students from multiple majors.
