Hackers SLS (Space Lunch System)
Community project by independent specialists, HacDC, RSC, Unallocated Space - Greater Washington DC and MD area, United States

Team Description

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.

Plan for launch

besides the radios and camera, we will try to send some Raspberry Pi sensors, control moment gyro and custom tracker

Why did you join?

It seems like a great platform to meet like minded groups and share our enthusiasm about near space
