High Altitude Ballooning
Calgary and Area
"Poor Mans Space program"
This was a launch by a team from Airdrie's space science club.
This flight used a 1200 gram balloon, launched from Carbon. we had 2 aprs trackers. Tracking worked ok except 1 never got a GPS lock and stopped transmitting on the way down. We made it to between 88,000 and 94,000 ft. This was a 40KM chase, we ended up in a large open field approx near strathmore.
