NASA honors local engineering students

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Call it boldly going where few representatives have gone before. On Thursday representatives from NASA paid a visit to Texas Tech.

They were there to honor engineering students with a nomination for the 2012 Rotary National Award for Space Achievement Stellar Award.

Students from both Texas Tech and Frenship helped work on components for the Orion spacecraft through NASA's SANS project, or, Students Shaping Americas Next Spacecraft.

According to NASA, Orion will fly its first orbital test flight in 2014.
