We are a high school robotics team with just over 20 high altitude launches over the last 18 months. We fly a variety of research and photography payloads
We're going to go for a new team distance record. We have been experimenting with various ways to achieve neutral buoyancy, and we'll be testing a new payload on this launch which compresses helium to reduce lift during certain portions of the flight.
We joined because we are interested in continuing to expand our ballooning network.
