OSU AIAA places fourth at NASA competition
The NASA University Student Launch Initiative (USLI)  challenge, hosted by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, tasked student teams to propose, design, build and test a reusable rocket with a payload. The rocket had to reach a team selected altitude between 4,000 and 5,500 feet. Once reaching its highest point, the rocket deployed a recovery system and landed safely. The payload had to be a drone or rover that autonomously deployed from the rocket after the rocket landed. The Oregon State team, comprised of mechanical and electrical engineering and computer science students also won first place in the highest technical award, the Vehicle Design Award.
