Sounding Rocket Launch

RockSat-X Launch

NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia

Coverage of the mission will begin 15 minutes before the first launch.

The Terrier-Improved Orion and Terrier-Improved Malemute rockets will launch 5 minutes apart and are expected to reach an altitude of about 70 miles (113 kilometers) before descending by parachute into the Atlantic Ocean to be recovered.

The rockets will be carrying experiments developed by more than 30 university and community college teams as part of NASA’s RockOn Workshop and RockSat programs.
