Prize submissions are now open.
We are members of the Students' Space Association Balloon Division at Warsaw University of Technology,which has 19 members entirely. We have already launched 3 successful balloon missions to the stratosphere in 2013 and 2014. We also took part in 2014 Selection Workshop of the ESA/DLR/Rymdstyrelsen REXUS/BEXUS Programme (as the BuLMA experiment team).
We plan to use two different APRS systems designed and built by our members to track the balloon with 5,5 kg payload. As a payload we will have a couple of experimental devices. All designed and built by our members 1) CAPELLA P1 - 200-m. long VLF/LF antenna. 2) Prototype of PW-Sat 2 satellite Deorbit sail. 3) KULLA 2 - Prandtl probe and spherical probe measuring the electric field. 4) KULLA 3 - spherical probe measuring the greenhouse effect. 5) PERICULUM 1 - accelerometric gravimeter.
We joined because we wanted to take part in a worldwide balloon challenge, learn something new, meet people with similar interests and win great prizes!
