2013-2014 NASA Student Launch
The NSL competition is a year-round project for college students to design, build, and launch a reusable, recoverable, high-powered rocket with a scientific payload to a target altitude. It engages students in scientific research and real-world engineering processes with NASA engineers. The project requires a report written for each step of the design phase that details the design and safety of the students' project - the Preliminary Design Review, the Critical Design Review, the Flight Readiness Review, and the Post Launch Assessment Review. The PDR, CDR, FRR, and PLAR are evaluated by panels of scientists and engineers from NASA and by NASA contractors and external partners.
The NSL launch will be on May 17th, 2014.
