On Saturday, May 19th, 2012 we traveled to Moses Lake, WA to launch our high altitude balloon for the ESS205 : Access to Space class at the University of Washington.
The balloon made it to over 100,000′ before popping, and coming back down to land somewhere nearby. Unfortunately we were unable to find and recover the payload, so we now hope that it has landed in a farmer’s field and will be found. Stickers placed on the payloads give our contact information, so we hope to receive a call soon!
Here’s a video of us launching the balloon and the payloads!
