Students at East High School in Rochester will be eagerly awaiting the results of an experiment they sent into space.
The project was on board the Space-X CRS 12 rocket that launched from Cape Canaveral Station in Florida Monday afternoon.
Last fall, students around the country created proposals to test the effects of gravity, and East High School was one of 21 schools chosen to take part in “Mission 11” to the International Space Station.
The project involves a fluid mixing enclosure with bacteria in it. It will remain in orbit for 6 to 8 weeks.
