AUSTIN (KXAN) — Many students had the unique opportunity to work with a former NASA astronaut in hopes to have their experiment sent to the International Space Station.
Higher Orbits is a non-profit that brings the program Go For Launch! across the country. There are about a dozen of these events scheduled, with more in the works for 2016. During each event, the students work on a variety of collaborative activities, but the main focus is for every team to design an experiment they’d like to see tested in space.
