Rocket U: Engineers Push New Limits

Rocket University participants at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida created an instrumented capsule and dropped it from a high-altitude balloon during a recent test to find out how the aerodynamic payload would handle during free-fall. The engineering program allows participants to work in fields outside their specialties to broaden their experience base.
