HJHS Civil Air Patrol Visits ULA

CAP Astronaut

The CAP Cadets of Hartselle Junior High learned how this nation's rockets are produced at United Launch Alliance rocket plant this past week. The tour took the Cadets from the initial raw materials to the final assembly of the Atlas, Delta, and Vulcan rockets. The Cadets also learned that one of the astronauts who works with the program, Air Force Colonel Eric Boe, began his career as a CAP Cadet.
