BOREALIS is Montana Space Grant Consortium's high altitude ballooning program since 2001. In the program students from a variety of curricula work together to conceive, design and build payloads that are flown up to 100,000 feet - the edge of space. Borealis has two complete ballooning programs at Montana State University and the University of Montana.
We are launching our payload from Augusta, Montana April 8th or 29th between 13:00 - 15:00 UTC. We will have video, accelerometer, radiosonde, and three GPS tracking devices on board.
Because this is a great group to support.
Team Launch Date: 04/30/2016
