VALLEY CENTER, Kan. - A project connecting a Sedgwick County high school with the International Space Station launched today.
The "Student Spaceflight Experiments Program" at Valley Center High School has had a relationship with NASA for several years. The school has an experiment waiting for launch, when a cargo flight from a NASA launch pad in Virginia travels to the International Space Station.
The launch has been delayed a couple of times. First the space station developed cooling problems. Then Wednesday, the launch was called off by a solar flare which sent massive radiation toward earth.
