STUDENT LAUNCH RESCHEDULED FOR MAY 20

After analysing the results of a test on the parachute system for the SL-5 rocket, New Mexico Space Grant Consortium (NMSGC) Director Dr. Patricia Hynes has rescheduled the SL-5 Student Launch to Friday, May 20. Engineers from UP Aerospace conferred with NMSGC launch officials and it was determined that, even though the drop test was successful, a portion of flight hardware became entangled during recovery and was damaged. Safe return of the students' 27 onboard experiments is a requirement of this launch, so in order to meet the mission specifications, the launch has been rescheduled to Friday, May 20, 2011 at Spaceport America.
