RockOn Launches Undergraduate Research

Virginia TV station WTKR featured a live launch from Nasa’s Wallops Flight Facility where suborbital rockets are launching student experiments into space. Nasa’s RockOn workshop brings dozens of undergraduate students to the launch site where they learn how to design and build space experiments. The space agency then launches the experiments over 100 kilometers into the sky. The experiments briefly experience microgravity and the space environment before falling back to Earth.
