Launch date set for June 8th! After careful design and development from our high-altitude balloon project team (Bryan Chan, Tyler Reid, Paul Tarantino, Ashish Goel and I), we have a tentative launch date for our experiment to 120,000 ft to test HiMARC's Fluid Lensing imaging algorithms on ground-based targets from altitude as well as gather data for a GPS experiment.
Craigman of Oceanside Photo & Telescope will also be coming along for the ride =>
Special thanks to Max Praglin of RocketChutes.com for the donated chute that will bring our payload home safe!
