Prize submissions are now open for GSBC 2018 April 13-30.

High Altitude Balloon Group Farsund - Farsund, Norway

Team Description

We participated in GSBC in 2014 . We have previously launched and retrieved four high altitude balloons to near space from Norway, and this will mark our fifth high altitude mission , with high school students from this part of Norway.

Plan for launch

We will build our mission around climate research, and continue our work in pinpointing the high polar jet streams over Norway. Our website. Space Balloon Norway, highlights our balloon missions, and we look especially forward to meeting the challenge, and getting others to send up balloons.

Why did you join?

We joined because I am a Science and Mathematics teacher (originally from New York City) who considers GSBC an excellent platform in stimulating young individuals to engage in life changing, positive, and intellectually empowering activities, such as this one.
