High Altitude Balloon Launch

21 Feb dwaduo 0 Creativity
The edge of Earth.  A space horizon. 100 000 feet in the air. What are we talking about?  The launch of our high altitude weather balloon, of course.

We are launching the Eagle Pro Weather Balloon.  Its flight computer records data such as temperature, pressure, altitude, wind speed, GPS coordinates, etc. to a micro SD card for post-mission analysis. That will be the task for our upper elementary and junior high students as part of their Science investigations.

Attached to the delta flight frame, is our HERO GoPro camera which will will record the amazing visuals as the balloon ascends into the atmosphere!  That footage will be the domain of the Media students who will refine it into an awesome YouTube video.

Stay tuned for the exact launch date.
