Fifteen student experiments will be conducted aboard the International Space Station after making their way there on the SpaceX's Dragon capsule.
The experiments, which are collectively known as Aquarius, were sent to space on the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that launched Tuesday and were inside the Dragon capsule that has now docked at the International Space Station.
The experiments were designed by 13 teams from across the country that submitted their proposals and were picked out of a pool of 779 student teams.
The youngest teams were composed of middle-school students while the oldest team was from a community college. Two of the teams were from California.
