In June 2023, university teams from the UK gathered in Machrihanish, Scotland for the UKSEDS Mach-23
competition. Teams were evaluated on the technical design of their rocket and CanSat, and on precision
in achieving a 3 km launch height. Demonstrating excellence in design and achieving a launch of 3027 m, a
mere 1% off the target, Durham University Spaceflight Society (DUSF) secured the first place.
