The countdown is on for five engineering students – seniors Karen Lyndsey Smith, Jessica Hampton, Joel Thompson and Luis Gonzalez and freshman Mitchell Buehler – competing in NASA’s Student Launch rocket competition.

Having successfully launched their sub-scale prototype rocket Jan. 12, UNT’s team is officially qualified for the national competition April 4 at NASA in Huntsville, Ala. The rocket’s full-scale design will be over 6 feet tall and will travel over a mile into the air. The students plan to fabricate and test the full-scale design in March prior to the April competition.
