The Big Bend Sentinel reports that the experiment "The Effect of Microgravity on the Growth of pH of Lactobacillus acidophilus" has been chosen to be part of a science package that will be sent to the International Space Station by the Space X Dragon rocket.
The rocket is expected to launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL around 9:30 PM on October 7th.
A back up launch opportunity is available on Monday, October 8.
The experiment was created by Illiana Fernandez, Alvaro Romero and Rafael Sanchez -- all members of Presidio High School's Class of 2012.
Fernandez, Romero and Sanchez also presented the project to a panel of scientific authorities at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. in July.
