NASA Student Launch is a program designed to test High School and University rocketry students, and give them the opportunity to evaluate their understanding in real life situations. Jordan Slavish is a teacher in Oregon and our podcast’s go-to person for rocket information and expertise. Dr. Jonathan McDowell, also featured in this episode, is an astrophysicist and a fountain of knowledge on rocket launches since as early as the Apollo missions. He is here to answer the questions of the students involved in this challenge from Jordan's class. Join hosts Shanti and Danny while we learn more about astrophysics and rocketry from Dr McDowell, Jordan, and his class.
