United Launch Alliance Announces K-12 Student Rocket Launch Payloads

ulalaunch.com, July 1, 2021: United Launch Alliance (ULA) has selected K-12 student payloads to launch aboard three intern-built sport rockets at this summer’s Student Rocket Launch. ULA intern volunteers design, build and launch the three 19-foot-tall high-power sport rockets – named Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato – while volunteer interns from Ball Aerospace and K-12 students design and build payloads that launch on the rockets.
