The team’s winning experiment focuses on the evaluation of self-healing materials in microgravity. This experiment launched aboard the NG-10 flight on November 17, 2018. The students are still working through the data but we will post updates when we have them.

Higher Orbits would like to extend a special thanks to all of the volunteers for the events in the Cygnus Series and Orbital ATK (now Northrup Grumman) for their support as Series Sponsor.

“I couldn't be happier that our simple experiment on self-healing materials will get the opportunity to fly to ISS and return meaningful data that could shape future space technology. This whole project all started with an idea that we came up with one weekend and getting to see it launch is more amazing than I could've imagined.”
