It appears that the smarty pants kids from MSU's Space Science and Engineering Laboratory get another bite at the apple, and I think that's cool as hell.

You may remember that this past Spring, the students and faculty were a part of another launch that unfortunately failed to reach orbit due to a problem with one of the rockets.

I won't pretend to understand what happened with the failed attempt this Spring, but I'm thrilled that the students and faculty get another chance at the history books this week.

According to Spaceref.com - "The satellite, called Explorer-1 [Prime], is scheduled to launch Oct. 28 on a NASA mission."

For all the details on the project and further details on the launch, read the entire article HERE. -m
