NASA Student Launch

$2,290 of $11,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 8 months
St. Monica Rocketry Club finished 12th in the Nation at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) in May 2017.   Because of that high finish, NASA has invited the Club to participate in the NASA Student Launch.

The NASA Student Launch takes place in Huntsville, Alabama.  NASA requires the team to send an experimental payload 1 mile up into the air.  We will be sending live shrimp up as the payload with a complicated cooling and ventilation system.   The experiment is to see if the shrimp will survive G-force and the landing.   

It takes 7 years to reach Mars from Earth and having a sustainable food source is an issue.  The importance of this experiement is to determine if brine shrimp can survive G-Forces as well as temperature change and movement.   These shrimp could then be used to feed other food that the astronauts could grow and eat like salmon.

On Saturday, the rocketeers will travel to Durham to launch their sub scale rocket. They do this to make sure the computer design meets reality in stability, safety and feasibility. With our first snowfall expected that day-it's going to be an interesting day to say the least!
