In the spring of 2014 our Differential Equations class set out to launch a high altitude weather balloon (HAB) into space. The payload was equipped with a GoPro camera to capture HD video of the ascent as well as some scientific electronics to measure pressure and altitude.

This site details the preparation up to launch as well as the footage obtained upon recovery of the payload. Hopefully our project inspires you to attempt your own launch and that this site serves as a resource for you during your project.
