Students Set High Speed Record for Rocket

Last year's rocket team was recognized by Captain Carl E Garrett Jr. at last Friday's pep rally for breaking the record for fastest rocket last spring in Fredricksburg, TX. The body of the rocket was constructed of carbon fiber, made light and tested for any defects. several students created a spreadsheet that predicted the trajectory of the rocket which then was given to NASA's Aerospace Engineers at Johnson Space Center in Houston. This years team will be working hard for a similar success.
