Advanced Rocketry Club receives award in NASA ceremony

The UND Advanced Rocketry Club, led by Physics & Astrophysics Professor Tim Young, received third place in the 2021 Student Launch Rookie Awards at the NASA Student Launch Live Awards Ceremony.

The virtual ceremony is available on the NASA Student Launch Facebook page and the UND award is announced beginning at 1:14:16.

“UND’s Advanced Rocketry Club spent the last year working toward a large rocket carrying a lander payload capable of up-righting and leveling itself after landing and then taking a 360-degree picture which is then uploaded to a remote ground station,” Young said.
