A couple of Union eighth grade science experiments are out of this world; or at least they will be soon.

NASA chose 100 "Cubes In Space" experiments to launch into space next month, and two them were designed by Union eighth graders. Those students got to share their ideas with NASA engineers.

The projects launch on June 26th.

One focuses on establishing a stable ecosystem in space, the other looks at how potent a couple of over-the-counter medicines are in space.
