Puerto Rican students work with NASA on spacecraft :: La Prensa :: America in English

San Juan, Jun 5 (EFE).- Students at the University of Puerto Rico are working with experts from NASA on RockSat X, a small satellite that will collect materials in orbit, the university said.

A Terrier-Improved Malemute rocket carrying the RockSat-X payload is scheduled to lift off Aug. 11 from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, UPR said in a press release. The spacecraft, set to remain in orbit for a year, is the result of five years of research and construction by students from UPR and other universities.
