U-M bicentennial to reach space with time capsule

In honor of the University of Michigan's bicentennial, a group of U-M students have embarked on a mission to send a time capsule into space for 100 years.

Titled the Michigan Bicentennial Archive, or M-BARC, the team plans to launch a small time capsule containing photos and a DNA experiment encoded with U-M's mission statement.
