NASA/Cubes in Space - Two Student Experiments Launched!

Isabel Escobar, one of 17 students in Academia Cotopaxi's after school NASA/CIS Club, presented at NASA's Wallop's Flight Center; both on-stage and during a student exhibit. She explained how the data received from space flight on the Terrier-Improved Orion Sounding rocket - for one, of the two accepted experiments for rocket launch - will contribute to human space flight. The remaining three experiments will be launched in an edge-of-space balloon in August, and then the data will be analyzed and shared during the fall of 2017. Great job, Isabel!
