ASU student-led payloads launched on Blue Origin space vehicle
Three astronautical rocketry teams — composed of students in the Fulton Schools and ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration — recently launched their payloads into space as part of the Blue Origin space exploration program. The payloads are the first designed and built by ASU students to be launched into outer space. Teams were challenged to develop payloads that would provide an answer to a science question (such as how planets form), test technologies under development (such as remote acoustic sensors) or collect data on the how the five human senses — smell, taste, sight, hearing and touch — work in space.
