Launch Team

As a student of the University of South Alabama, the student organization that I admire the most would have to the USA Launch Society. The Launch Society works on high powered rockets as part of the University Student Launch Initiative (USLI) Competition.

The reason I admire the Launch Society is because they built a 5ft rocket that launches and reaches apogee at about 1 mile high. That is roughly a vertical altitude of 5,280 feet high. The members are mostly seniors that work diligently to determine different factors that will produce a better launch. This past year the Launch Society qualified to compete in a NASA launch competition. In order to compete, they compiled an article over 50 pages long for NASA explaining their rocket dimension, safety protocols, and motor size. Although they didn't win at the NASA Launch, South's Launch Society placed in multiple events giving recognition to their hard work.
