Far Horizons
Adler Planetarium - Chicago, United States

Team Description

We're a team of students, volunteers and scientists at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. We've flown nearly 80 HAB missions in over 8 years. Our goal is to bring hands-on science, engineering and exploration to anyone with the desire to learn.

Plan for launch

A sunset launch with a passively stabilized platform for HD video and an experiment to capture stratospheric spectra to use as a baseline for characterizing exoplanet atmospheres

Why did you join?

We've been doing this for over 8 years so we appreciate being part of the community and helping others launch their own missions and do interesting science
