It Really is Rocket Science (Part 4 of 4)

During the summer, while many college students went to the beach, a few dozen BU engineering [...]students headed off to space. More than 60 undergraduates are currently designing and building BU's entry in the University Nanosatellite Program, a competition sponsored by the U.S. Air Force, and about half of them got started on the project this summer.

The countdown to liftoff for a satellite built by Boston University undergraduates begins. Officials from the Air Force visited BU for an all-day "critical design review" of the University's entry in the University Nanosatellite Program, a project that began in early 2007 and will finish, the students hope, at the tip of a rocket.
