From the Go For Launch! Gilbert, AZ 2017 Program, Saguaro Snakes team members are:
Saguaro Snake’s winning experiment grows plants in microgravity to test how nitrogen being put back into the soil might be affected by the microgravity conditions. This experiment launched to the International Space Station aboard OA-8, the ninth flight of the Orbital ATK unmanned resupply spacecraft Cygnus on November 11, 2017.
The experiment did successfully launch to station aboard OA-8; however, due to technical difficulties, didn’t return any data. The experiment was reflown aboard OA-9. The students are still working analyze the data
Higher Orbits would also like to extend a special thanks to all of our presenting partners and event sponsors for the Orbital ATK Division. Thank you to Southwest Airlines for Travel Support and to Orbital ATK for their sponsorship of the entire series.
