You may recall that last year we participated in the Student Spaceflight Experiment Program at the high school level and students from Business Careers who were taking a class at Holmes were selected to have their experiment fly on board the International Space Station. Originally, their experiment launched in June, but there was a malfunction and the rocket was lost. Today, their experiment is set to launch again. The students - John and Kaitlyn have shown tremendous poise, maturity, and patience throughout this process.
