About Us

Aims and Objectives:

  • To give students with enthusiasm for space and astronomy a space to socialise and work together.
  • To give our members opportunities to work on innovative and nation leading projects such as the XRT-C, our 5 meter radio telescope.
  • To promote astronomy and space science interests, to the university, general public and wider student body.

SpaceExe is the best society in Exeter for those interested in astronomy, space science, rocketry or anything else spacey.

Since our inception we've worked on countless exciting and practical projects, with the most popular being our student built and run radio telescope, and our yearly entry into the UKSEDS rocketry competition. By joining these projects our members get unique opportunities for hands on experience in astronomy and aerospace engineering that you won't find anywhere else in the country.

We also give our members opportunities to join outreach events which is a great way to share your enthusiasm about space while also gaining valuable experience in science communication and having a fun time along the way. Usual outreach opporunities include our yearly space science conference featuring presentations of world leading research, and our joint stargazing events with the University astronomy department which have seen hundreds of people coming out with us to learn about the night sky.

COVID restrictions have moved most of our work online, but we're commited to giving our members the best possible experience regardless. Our projects are running where possible and we're working on running online outreach and livestreamed stargazing

If you'd like to be involved in any of the work we do, or you're just interested in space and want a place to socialise then pick up a membership and follow our socials for updates. New for this year we're running a Discord voice chat server ( ) , we send out invite links to our members periodically but if you've missed out then contact us and we'll get you online.

Stay Spacey!
