This research rocket launching May 16 will provide testing for 24 experiments & test two capabilities for sounding rocket missions to improve payload recovery — a new shutter door system allowing recovery of telescope payloads in water environments & an update of the recovery systems electronic and mechanical parts that date back to the 1970s. These updates decrease the system’s length and weight, allowing for expansion of science research capabilities in the future. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/2rfzLbz
