DEERFIELD – Students from Deerfield High School launched their experiment to the International Space Station on August 14 after winning the Higher Orbits Go For Launch! Andromeda Division competition.

The students, Justin Bank, Chirag Goel, Dan Kambich, Zach Levy and Katherine Stecher, devised an experiment that would utilize a microgravity environment to test the effects of radiation on living cells in space. DHS was the only school in the Chicago area that was chosen.
