Members of the team from the University of Florida in Gainesville carry their rocket to the launch pad during the annual NASA Student Launch Projects rocketry challenge, held April 22, 2012, at Bragg Farms in Toney, Ala. More than 500 students from 53 middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities took part in the "launchfest," flying rockets of their own design -- complete with working science payloads or engineering payloads. The 2012-13 Student Launch Projects is under way; students will travel to North Alabama to launch their rockets on April 21, 2013. The rocketry challenge is organized each year by the Academic Affairs Office at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. (MSFC/Ray Downward)
