UVA Spacecraft Design Team to Launch Payload Aboard NASA Scientific Balloon

Mon, 10/12/2015 - 8:47pm -- WCVE

We have a desire to go into space to find out what’s on other worlds and to learn more about dangers such as Cosmic radiation. Nine University of Virginia students have teamed up with NASA to send a cosmic ray experiment 23 miles into space on a giant high-altitude balloon to determine how much radiation is too much. The students have been working on the project for 2 years and the NASA balloon with payload will launch any day now.
