I saw on SpaceRef that the rocket with the student experiments onboard launched successfully! Hooray! And check it out — the online article has this picture:
Those are the people BABloggers helped get to the launch! The teacher is Pamela Ghaffarian, and the students are Billy Shannon (left) and Cameron Wade (right).
I haven’t heard back from Ms. Ghaffarian yet, but she promised a report when she could get one.’
