Balloon launch scheduled!

Posted by 3ricj on 5 May 2008

We are go for launch on Saturday morning, 5/10/2008 around 9am PST!

We will post information about the launch, and provide links so you can watch the location from the comfort of your own home.

Here is the short summary of our plan:

– Launch an autonomous glider which has been lifted by a huge balloon to over 90,000 feet. If it goes as planned, the software will glide the glider back to us. Codename: Habit.
– Launch a ballloon with scientific instrumentation onboard. Codename: Rehab.

There are also rumors of a 3rd balloon launch. Watch this spot for more information. Wish us luck.
