Weather Balloon

Weather Balloon meetings are Wednesdays at 6:30pm in Furnas 1025.

Weather Balloon is an old project group of SEDS that was resurrected this year. Since we are starting from scratch, the group has spent this semester researching how weather balloons work, and what is necessary to build one on our own. Currently, we are collecting parts for our plan to build a functional balloon. Usually every other week, we invite members of NanoSat to come in and give us pointers and suggestions on constructing our balloon. Provided that our parts come in on time, we would like to do a test flight this semester, with plans to do a joint balloon project with NanoSat in the spring.
