Go, Space Potatoes!
The Space Potatoes, this year's TARC winners, from Odle Middle School in Bellevue, Washington, are competing in the International Rocket Challenge finals in London today, competing against the best teams from France, the UK, and Japan.
Here they are, meeting Apollo 15 astronaut Al Worden.
These kids have worked really hard, and have gone far in rocketry at a young age. I'm sure they all have a bright future, and they're an inspiration.
This is a team of 8th graders, and we should all wish them well. I hope we can get a chance to talk to them on The Rocketry Show when they're back in the U.S.
Their name, by the way, is a reference to The Martian. These guys are awesome.
