Purdue Space Program Liquids Team: This is Persistence at Purdue University

Whether in a brainstorming session on campus or launching a rocket in a remote corner of the Mojave Desert, Boilermakers never stop in their pursuit to become the best.

Again and again and again, the Purdue Space Program Liquids team persistently works toward better and better results. When the team discovered that its rocket, “Boomie Zoomie,” landed with minimal damage, members trekked two miles into the desert to retrieve it — and then they got to work. The rocket was resurrected to launch again that same weekend; a huge — and unprecedented — win for the Purdue Space Program Liquids team.
