Sounding Rocket Launch

Here is a sounding rocket launch on 20 June 2019 from the NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia (US).

The very cool thing about this launch (as if the launch wasn’t enough) the payload is comprised of experiments from university and community college students!

The experiments were taken to suborbital altitude by a NASA NASA Terrier-Improved Orion suborbital sounding rocket.

What a great time to be a student.

By the way, there will be another launch Monday night / Tuesday morning (depending on your location), not a sounding rocket but the mighty SpaceX Falcon Heavy. The launch will be from Kennedy Space Center and we all know weather in the area can delay launches. This launch is scheduled for 23:30 local time (04:30 UT) and will be spectacular if all goes as planned.
