I want to make launch my own unmanned spacecraft to space, where do I start?
>>
>>2137475
start by making a bunch of small simple rockets, later add telemetry, then guidance, then build a big rocket
wa la
>>
>>2137475
build V2
add more
you are 90% there

>>2137475
By getting a permit to build, house, and shoot a rocket from your countrys government. (NEWSFLASH: ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPENED)

>Join one of the handful of university rocketry teams that can do it
>replicate everything they have or do
>buy all the tooling and material they use
>get all the contracts for third party components
>get permits for restricted materials if necessary
>gain access to launch facilities or build your own and get it licenced in a couple of years and mountains of money
>build a mission control site
>arrange launch dates, clear area with aviation and shipping authorities
>launch
It's that simple, brainlet.

Fill balloon with helium.
Let go.

Step 1. Define 'space' as 30cm above ground
Step 2. Jump
Congratulations, you are now a spacecraft.

Get a job in one of the space companies, take a rocket peace home each day until you can build a whole one.

You start by googling it, numbnuts. Company called Rocket Lab will do it.

Expanding upon this. You need to make a platform that can be lifted by a balloon, carrying a rocket. . The balloon needs a pressure relief valve so it doesn't burst as it gets bigger. Finally when you hit max altitude fire the rocket. The platform can act as a comm link to the rocket. If the goal is just as far and fast from earth as possible then you don't need much data. You will still need multiple stages, but I think this is the best bet to get as close to space as possible for diy.

check out what this guy is doing and you will see the complexity involved.

but if you need something in space check out how sounding rockets work and you can go from there. Depending where you live model rocket licences may be different, so you need to look up how gig of a motor you can get.
I would not recommend trying to build your own chemical motors.

You could also go for Water rocketry.

but getting to space is more difficult with that, but the aerodynamics are still the same.

This. sugar rocket + balloon. You won't get to orbit but you will get to space
