“You keep your fingers crossed,” she said. “You think what else can I do to send positive vibes to the rocket so that it does take off?’ It was really interesting to watch it. It was smooth, there were no complications, no hiccups.”

The projects are part of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program, which is run by the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education.

The local school district in Kamloops raised $25,000 to secure a spot on the mission. Student groups within the city then competed to determine which project would be selected.
