SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Would you consider taking a trip into space? We just heard this week about a project that would send a man and woman to Mars.

Some Siouxland students already have their sights on the stars. In fact, their skills earned them a trip to India!

Four students from Sioux City, Sergeant Bluff-Luton and Alta-Aurelia spent ten days halfway around the world, taking part in the Asia Regional Design Competition.

They were among 200 international students working to create designs for things like a space station and items that would be needed inside.

It was a trip of a lifetime and students say it's a little challenging getting back on schedule.

"Getting there was easier than coming back," said Merrill Brady, a senior at Sioux City's East High School. "I adjusted to their time and their sleeping schedule, their eating schedule, everything I was fine with. And now that I'm back home, I'm still stuck on India time."

So how did these four get chosen for such a contest, and how did they overcome some of the challenges they faced?

We'll have more on their outer space adventure, Sunday on KTIV News Four.
