Description

Colorado Space Grant Consortium (COSGC) and NASA offer Universities in the United States affordable access to sub-orbital space flights. Wyo Galactic, composed of four Mechanical Engineering students, continues UW involvement for a second year. The goals of Wyo Galactic were to develop technologies and components for future UW experimenters to use as part of their test packages. These experiment sub-systems included, a rotationally stabilized camera plate, GPS tracking and logging of flight data, wireless recovery of test data.
