Preparation for AstroSoc’s Space Weather Balloon project will continue on the 15th November 2012. The plan of the project is eventually to send a balloon up to an altitude of 30km.

At this height a digital camera mounted on the payload will capture amazing images of the earth laid out below. A tracking system is also needed to keep track of where the balloon lands.

But this is your chance to get involved in a exciting project and leave your mark on AstroSoc. We will be listening to all the ideas on offer so please come to the meeting at 7:30pm in G13 of Nuffield. We look forward to seeing you there.
