CU Students Have 2 Payloads On Rocket

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — University of Colorado students have two experiments on a rocket scheduled for launch on Thursday.

The rocket is being launched from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The university experiments are part of an educational project called RockSat-X, which is designed to provide students with experience designing, building, testing and conducting experiments for space flight.

The experiments focus on projects to limit space garbage and deploy cameras.
