LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– Students in the Principles of Engineering class for Warren Tech students at Lakewood High School watched their hard work launched into space on Tuesday.
SpaceX launched from its rocket at Cape Canaveral on Tuesday afternoon. Monday’s launch was canceled because of bad weather.
The re-supply ship will make its way to the International Space Station. On board the rocket is a hydrofuge designed by the high school students. The hydrofuge may solve the problem of growing plants in zero gravity.
The students have been working on the project for years.
Besides the experiment, SpaceX is also carrying groceries for those aboard the International Space Station.
