Intern Program LogoThe Future Rocket Blasts Off
The 2015 Student Rocket Launch is scheduled for Saturday, July 18. Come enjoy a day of rocketry as three ULA intern-built, high-power sport rockets – including the largest to launch from the state of Colorado – blast off from a launch site just outside Pueblo, Colo., and travel thousands of feet into the air.

This year, three ULA intern rockets will launch 17 payloads built by Ball Aerospace and elementary, middle and high school students from across the country. Visit the Payloads page to learn more.

Download the 2015 Rocket/Payload Lineup to see the three rockets that will blast off at this year’s event. 

The largest rocket, the Future, is more than 25 feet tall and will launch approximately 9,000 feet above the ground!
