STEM supporters unite to encourage students in ‘Stellar’ exploration

The Coffee County Central High School Air Force Junior ROTC StellarXplorers Team One received second place in the Air Force Association StellarXplorers space system design competition, Prestige Division, in March. During the competition, teams are asked for their solutions to a typical space design problem, such as orbit determination, satellite component selection and launch vehicle planning, as outlined in a scenario describing the system’s mission and constraints.
