On Thursday at 1:07 PM, the two stage Antares rocket launched from the Mid-Atlantic Spaceport in Wallops Island, Virginia. On board the spacecraft is a satellite named Sky Cube, which will be used to take photos and send messages from space. Go-Science, a regional science and technology non-profit based in Greenville is partnering with Southern Stars for the space project. This week, I spoke Executive Director of Go Science Roger Conner about the mission and how they plan to use SkyCube once it’s deployed.
