Successful first flight for RIT SPEX group (New York)
#1
Early Sunday morning, more than a dozen Rochester Institute of Technology students assembled in a campus parking lot to launch a scientific experiment to the edge of space.

Plans for the launch, using a high-altitude weather balloon, began several months ago, as members of RIT SPEX - short for RIT Space Exploration Research Group - designed the container, constructed the experiments and arranged clearances with the Federal Aviation Administration.
