Local students launch their experiments into space

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Students from more than a dozen local high schools watched their microlab experiments blast off to the International Space Station Friday morning, and soon they'll be receiving test data from the astronauts in real time.

High school students across America, including here in San Diego are getting an out-of-this-world opportunity to expand their leaning potential to the International Space Station.

Maranatha High in 4-S Ranch was one of the schools participating. They designed a carbon dioxide monitor and watched their science project blast off into space from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Once the spacecraft docks with the space station, astronauts on board will set up the experiment for the students and then share the date with them live via Skype.
