Prize submissions are now open for GSBC 2018 April 13-30.
This is a community project driven by independent specialists from DC, MD, and members from HacDC, Rockville Makerspace & Unallocated Space. We're excited about going to near space, execute scientific experiments and retrieve the payload/data. We also want to see how makerspaces can collaborate on complex projects like these and use this as template to reach out to more people, especially, student groups. Our launch Name is "SpaceBlimp-7".Our payload housing is a lunch box. Hence, the team name.
still in the works but besides the radios and camera, we will try to send some Raspberry Pi computers, gyroscope, and muon detector.
It seems like a great platform to meet like minded groups and share our enthusiasm about near space
