Space Exploration

Thanks to continuous efforts of Berry Empire Space & Telemetry, Berry Empire is one of the first micronations to develop and successfully launch a reusable rocket.

Blueberry (Rocket)

The unsuccessful first launch of the rocket has been followed by a second, successful, launch that took place on August 13, 2021.[8]

Blueberry managed to perform a supersonic shock shortly after it's launch. The rocket is missing as it landed on an unknown, most likely foreign territory.

Formerly known as Berry-2, the rocket was developed by Berry Empire Space & Telemetry.

The launch of Mulberry was successful.

Cloudberry is being developed by Berry Empire Space & Telemetry.[9]
