ULA Future Heavy Rocket Launch

Video Caption: On June 24, 2017, interns and mentors from United Launch Alliance (ULA) launched the 53-foot-tall Future Heavy, breaking their own record for launching the world’s largest sport rocket. The rocket carried 16 payloads (experiments and instruments) from K-12 teams, Ball Aerospace mentors and a combined ULA/Roush Industries team. Working on their own time, ULA interns designed, built and launched the rockets with the guidance of mentors, and Ball Aerospace mentors volunteered their time to create and test their payload. The rocket launched at the Spaceport America Cup International Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition in association with the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association (ESRA).
