NASA HUNCH Students Send Hardware into Space

Four single stowage lockers made and signed by NASA HUNCH students, onboard Crew Dragon (May 31, 2020)

Ready for launch! High school students across the nation contributed flight hardware to the historic Launch America event. SpaceX Crew Dragon sent astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) from the historic 39A launch pad at Kennedy Space Center on Sunday, May 31. And with them went four single stowage lockers (SSLs) designed by NASA HUNCH (High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware) program participants.

Manufacturing students have made 70 flight-ready single stowage lockers (SSLs) over the past four years. Four of these SSLs carried supplies to the ISS; supplies included liquid cooling ventilation garments, crew shoes and an exercise harness for the astronauts.

In recognition of their dedication and skills, students and instructors were encouraged to sign their names on top of the single stowage lockers.
