BRUNSWICK — Brunswick-based bluShift Aerospace plans to launch its 20-foot rocket from the former Loring Commerce Centre in October. The company hopes that the launch will serve as a springboard into building the aerospace industry in Maine.
Based out of Brunswick Landing — the site of the former Brunswick Naval Air Station — bluShift is manufacturing a biologically-derived fuel to power rockets. The fuel is made entirely from materials that can be grown on a farm, offering a cheaper alternative to traditional fuel without sacrificing its efficiency. The bluShift team hopes to showcase their signature fuel and engine at the launch next month.
