Castle Hill Near Space Agency
Sydney, Australia

Team Description

What on earth is CHNSA ???? Well its quite simple really … is stands for Castle Hill Near Space Agency … we are in Castle Hill in NSW and our current projects involve near space and high altitude balloons (hab) so sounds like a good name to use for the project. CHNSA is a father and son team Todd (Fourty something) and Mark (11). We enjoy science and engineering related projects and thought this would be a great project to do.

Plan for launch

Our initial goal is launch a high altitude balloon into near space with amateur radio and satellite tracking, a temperature logger and a HD camera to get some pictures or video then successfully recover it. Once we can successfully track and recover the balloon, we will look to launch additional scientific experiment payloads and student payloads.

Why did you join?
