Some High Schoolers Built a Satellite and NASA Just Sent It to Space [News]
posted November 21 2013 9:13.33 by spic0m




On November 19th, a rocket took off. It launched from an island in Virginia, turned east over the Atlantic Ocean, and sailed into the atmosphere. Aboard were 29 satellites -a record for one launch.

And one of those satellites? It was built by high schoolers.

That satellite -in space right now, whizzing over our heads- is called the TJ3Sat. Built by Virginia high-school students and their teachers, it represents over six years of work. It is the first orbiting spacecraft built by high-schoolers.
