What We Do

We are the only Society at the University of Bath dedicated to space. Whether you’re into space engineering, planetary science, or just enjoy looking up at the stars, we have something for you. Throughout the year, our collection of projects and events will give you a huge range of ways you can get involved and meet other students interested in space. 

We’re planning interesting talks for this year too – make sure to keep an eye on the SpaceSoc Facebook group and page for all the latest updates. 

We’ll be running film and launch nights for when you just want to relax and there’ll be meetups in the SU and on our discord server too, where you can chat with us about SpaceX developments, asteroid landings and more!

Reasons to Join Our Rover Team

We have been competing in the UKSEDS’ national Lunar Rover Competition for 3 years. We become the UKSEDS Olympus Rover Trials 2019 champions, showing that Bath has what it takes to go up against the very best universities in the country. We’ll be taking part again in the next competition and aiming for the win, so make sure to join the Team Bath Roving Facebook group to get involved. We take students of any age and discipline and there’s bound to be some way you can help.
