CLES-FACIL is one of INSA Lyon’s longest-standing student associations and one of France’s oldest astronautics clubs. It is the product of a merger between the INSA Lyon Fusée Astronautique Club (FACIL), created in 1967, and the Lyon Space Experimentation Club (CLES). The association designs and creates experimental rockets. It also develops CanSats and sounding balloons and organizes discovery sessions for children.

CLES-FACIL has set itself a new challenge in 2017: to build a ramjet rocket!
