Irmo High students following moon launch

Irmo High School Astronomy classes watched recaps of the Artemis Space Launch in class this week.

The launch was on November 16 at 1:47 am. Several students actually watched the launch live from their homes that morning.

The class is plotting and calculating the trajectory of the Orion spacecraft as it moves through space to circle the moon. The unmanned space flight is a test to hopefully put U.S. Astronauts back on the moon.
