Elena Barbour repairing ScubeR before integration

Members of the University of Hawaiʻi Community Colleges’ Project Imua team have successfully completed final tests and integration of their payload at NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The students from four UH community colleges finished the “remove before flight” procedures to prepare the propellant for their innovative rocket ScubeR and the camera on board its nosecone. They also integrated their payload called PrIME for Project Imua Multiple Experiment into the sounding rocket that is scheduled to carry their scientific experiments into space when it is launched on August 16. The students will not be allowed to touch their payload again until after it is recovered post-launch.
