NASA Student Launch
Illinois Space Society 2017-18
What is the NASA Student Launch Initiative
Student Launch is a research-based, competitive, experiential exploration activity. It strives to provide relevant, cost-effective research and development of rocket propulsion systems. This project offers multiple challenges reaching a broad audience of middle and high schools, colleges, and universities across the nation. The Illinois Space Society has been participating in this competition for over 5 years and is excited to be competing again! This year's competition allows teams to chose between 3 payload challenges: Target detection, deployable rover, or landing coordinates via triangulation. The ISS team has decided to pursue the deployable rover. More information on the payload and the vehicle can be found in the design section. You can check out the documentation section to delve into what ISS has constructed for previous year's competition. If you are interested in joining, please see below!
