A Successful Rocket Launch!

The majority of our day was spent preparing for successful launch of a high powered rocket. We obtained final clearance from the FAA earlier this week, and called in our NOTAM to clear the airspace. Last night and this morning, we performed final preparations on the rocket and then assembled the launch tower during EVA. We had a successful launch, which was incredible to see! We are planning to recover the rocket this evening after it cools down, and will see what the pictures look like.

Look Ahead Plan: We will continue our learning with discussion of ultrasound in spaceflight as well as genitourinary issues.
