Explorers Post 632 - BalloonSat

Up one level
This post has a goal to build, test, launch to 100,000 ft and recover, a payload. Students will have a chance to develop and fly payloads for a flight mission like that of a sounding rocket. They will learn about the atmosphere, experiment design, electronics and communications associated with the mission. They will develop and fly a BalloonSat payload into the mid stratosphere, nearly 20 miles above the ground. Post is functioning this year, but this will be updated infrequently. the next flight 2013A is 04/27 from Wyandot County Airport 56D, 10:00. This is our spring Student Experiments Flight.
