    (It won't be long before LSUA&M tries to steal this too.)

    Did we get a video camera there to record everything? Because THAT would make a good commercial.

    Thomas Jefferson High School...I wanna see what that satellite looked like. If it wasn't made out of old, discarded McDonald's Big Mac boxes...I will be so disappointed.

    I don't think so. He graduated in 2010. They were just starting CAPE-2 when he graduated.

    A NASA Minotaur I rocket blasted off from a launch pad in Virginia at 7:13 p.m. Tuesday, carrying the University of Louisiana’s communications satellite into orbit, the second space payload in six years for the university.

    A group of 30 that included UL engineering professors and engineering students counted down from 10 and let out a loud cheer as the rocket left the launch pad.

    Congrats to UL Engineering.

    But we need to change the headline for this thread. When I saw that UL was launching a second satellite it got me wondering what city was going to join Monroe in hosting a satellite campus of UL?

    Suck it, Hoax. You'll always be a pimple on the UL System's ___.
