TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More

The aim of building a rocket requires an ensemble of people with different skillsets, eager for developing a high-tech product. Here at ASTRA, we have a Team consisting of more than 40 people, all equally fascinated about space and dedicated to our shared goal of becoming the first European group to build a rocket that reaches space. Our members participate in different working groups, each dealing with another technical aspect of Project Karman. In the following sections, these teams and their work have been introduced.

Our board of directors

Mika Bauerfeind


 “I am working with ASTRA because it is a unique opportunity to gain practical experience you simply do not get in your studies. It also really motivates me to work in a team with all our dedicated and hard-working members to accomplish our target, reaching the Karman-Line.”

Jesaiah Coy

Deputy CEO of ASTRA e.V.

“I am excited to continue pioneering the journey of our rocket group to the Karman Line as part of the ongoing effort to democratize access to Space.”

Taha Merchant

Deputy CEO of ASTRA e.V.

“I am excited to join the Astra board as I have always had a very optimistic belief in Astra’s capabilities as a team and I hope to help it take one step further.”

Arne Stemme


“My passion has always been to take on complex challenges, from the development of an idea to its implementation. Be it the development of a gutter cleaner as part of a contest or the management of a fictitious bank in a banking simulation game. The business game gave me an exciting insight into the world of business and finance. Now it’s time to put the theory from business administration studies into practice.”

Lotta Dräger

Secretary of ASTRA e.V.

“There are few things more exhilarating than working with driven and like-minded people on a passion project. At ASTRA we have just that and I am thrilled to be a part of this team and make our vision a reality.”

Sahana Shastry


“My main motivation comes from seeing the project through the many phases and ensuring the aspect of all the subsystems coming together to achieve the mission objectives.”
