Rocket payload

  1. Jun 2, 2015 #1
    Hi All, first time poster. I have a question about if there are any rockets people have built that can carry a 100kg payload into space? By 'people' i mean non commercial.

    Whats the best forum for this question?

    I don't think so. The highest altitude amateur rocket I could find was the 2004 launch of the "go fast" rocket. It reached space (>100 km altitude), but I can't find numbers for the payload. I think it was just some telemetry electronics.
