High Altitude Ballooning
Calgary and Area
"Poor Mans Space program"
This was a launch by a team from University of Calgary
This flight used a 1200 gram balloon, launched from near chestermere. we had 3 aprs trackers and 1 spot. Tracking had many problems, 2 trackers never worked, 1 had issues on the way down, but started working again (probably froze, stopped working at -28C). We made it to 111,000 ft.
