The mission carried experiments built by undergraduate students from universities and community colleges across the country through the RockOn! and RockSat-C programs. The experiments, launch on a 36-foot long Terrier-Improved Orion sounding rocket, flew to an altitude of 72 miles and landed, via parachute, in the Atlantic Ocean. The payload has been recovered and the students are expected to receive their experiments this afternoon to begin their data analysis. Credit: NASA
