Rocket fins

These fins were designed by ÆSIR for the first rocket Odin by Atsushi Shirahama, Måns Rasmussen and Sangharsh Bhustalimath, with help from Johan Rasmussen. They consist of 8 layers of glass fibre with 2 layers of carbon fibre on the outside. A vacuum pump was used to extract any air bubbles inside. The cylinder was first made using a plastic sewage pipe as a mold and then the four fins were attached with laminate on the outside.
