In just over a month we will be headed to Tucson, AZ at Pima Air and Space for Go For Launch! with the stellar students in that area. Students in grades 8-12 can join us, along with Astronaut Wendy Lawrence, for 2 days of space inspired fun and a chance to have their experiment launched to the International Space Station! This event is made possible thanks to the support of BRPH!

For full details and to register visit www.HigherOrbits.org and visit the Go For Launch! page. Feel free to email us at GoForLaunch@HigherOrbits.org with any questions you have.

We are encouraging students to register asap for planning purposes and to guarantee an event t-shirt. The shirt will feature this event patch!

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to have a blast at Go For Launch!

#ThrowbackThursday to IAC2019 in Washington DC where some of our stellar students from Go For Launch! had the opportunity to attend this event... and have some fun hanging out in the Lockheed Martin Space Loft! What a blast!

While we are sad to miss IAC in Dubai next week, we wish everyone a wonderful event and hope to see you all next year at IAC!

Are you more excited for Halloween or the Crew-3 launch to the International Space Station? Who says you have to choose?! Both are happening on the same day but both are out of this world awesome!

You can register to participate in the NASA Virtual Launch event here - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nasas-spacex-crew-3-launch-registration-177242736797?aff=passport2

Perhaps a space inspired costume for launch viewing is appropriate? We'd love to see your pictures!

We are excited to launch into our first ever Go For Launch! Midland event today! Honored to partner with Midland Development Corporation & Midland ISD to bring our space inspired STEM event to local students.

Check out the stellar event patch that was created by a local student for this event!

Did you know that in 2014 Midland Airport was also licensed as a Spaceport?

#FlashbackFriday to IAC2019 in Washington DC. We loved being able to share this memorable event with some of our students (they had a blast!) We are sad to miss this years @iafastro IAC but hope to be able to attend with students next year! #SpaceInspires #STEM #STEAM @aiaa #fbf https://t.co/BTiu1SketX HigherOrbits photo

#ThrowbackThursday to #GoForLaunch Lexington 2016 at @bluegrassctc… Did u know that one of the students in this picture has been back to our events since AND had her team’s experiment flown to @Space_Station? We love to have students visit us more than once! #SpaceInspires #STEM https://t.co/tQAHed1a73 HigherOrbits photo

What experiment would YOU want to fly to the @Space_Station? That’s a question students at #GoForLaunch Midland are working on this week with the mentorship & guidance of #space & #STEM professionals @astro_DonThomas @spacemama @STEMJeff & @spacechelle. #SpaceInspires https://t.co/6xKz6FC50B HigherOrbits photo

We’ve launched into our 1st #GoForLaunch Midland event today. Stellar students from the area have the opportunity to work with Space & STEM experts for 2 days including @astro_DonThomas who flew on 4 #SpaceShuttle missions! And it’s his 1st trip to Midland, TX! #SpaceInspires https://t.co/VECxMARmVq HigherOrbits photo

We’ve got team members coming in from all over the country for this one! Also joining us are @astro_DonThomas @STEMJeff @spacemama & Katy - hopefully they also have awesome views on their flights too!! It’s not a view of space but it’s still stellar! #SpaceInspires #STEM #STEAM https://t.co/mLndcPCQkj
