GSBC 2019 Announced! April 5-29, 2019.

Buzzin Ballooners
Georgia Institute of Technology - Atlanta, United States

Team Description

We are a first time entry in GSBC. Our team is comprised of many age groups from freshman to grad students here at Georgia Tech. This is our first HAB being launched through GT affiliation. We comprise a team of multiple majors, ethnicity, and design ideas. We seek to produce something unique to GT while also exploring our own limits.

Plan for launch

We plan to launch our balloon with a total payload of 2 lbs or less. We will be hosting payloads from a local laboratory here on campus, in an effort to conduct avionics research. We plan to reach 100k or higher in altitude with possible remote access capabilities.

Why did you join?

A team comprised of members from the local rocketry club, we all possess interest in space. With a mix of majors, each of us wish to expand our skills in High Altitude Ballooning and collaborate on an amazing project.
