2014 Student Rocket Launch

On July 26, 2014, three high-power sport rockets built and refurbished by interns at United Launch Alliance launched 18 payloads built by interns from Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp interns and K-12 students from Colorado, Ohio and Alabama. Over an eight-week period, working on their own time, the ULA and Ball Aerospace interns design, build and test the rockets and the payloads (onboard instruments/experiments that are deployed after launch) with the guidance of mentors from both companies. The 25-foot-tall Future rocket is the tallest to launch from Colorado.

Flattr this!
