Share this

The Orbital ATK CRS-9 resupply mission to the International Space Station will carry 25 student-designed experiments. One of them envisions a future that includes sustainable farming in space!

Meet the Saguaro Snakes. This is a team of five high school students in Gilbert, Arizona, who won the Orbital ATK Division of the Go for Launch! competition in 2017. Go For Launch! is a multi-day program run by Higher Orbits that introduces students to astronauts and other spaceflight experts, engages them in collaborative activities, and culminates in a challenge to design a space experiment.
