Astra Space Inc. conducted a test launch of a rocket at the Pacific Spaceport Complex in Kodiak.
“The whole field trip was very enjoyable,” student Chelsea Mapili said. “I especially liked kayaking out on the pond and playing the ‘web game’ with my classmates.”
“I liked being out at the reservoir and looking at the night sky,” student Adelaide Botz said. “And when the stars come out it’s even better.”
Recently, turtles were brought into the fourth grade classroom at Mt. Eccles Elementary School.
“We didn’t meet all of our objectives, but we did gain valuable experience, plus even more valuable flight data,” reads a blog post written by Astra CEO Adam London. “This launch sets us well on our way to reaching orbit within two additional flights, so we’re happy with the result!”
