Fox Hollow Near Space Balloon Launch Club
Fox Hollow's weather balloon reached an altitude of 96,542 feet before bursting!
We tracked the location of our weather balloon using GPS. Check out the map below!
5th graders in the Near Space Balloon Launch Club are working together to design and create micro experiments to send into near space! The students will build a payload to hold their experiments, GoPro camera, GPS device, and Eagle Flight Computer . The payload will be attached to a parachute and weather balloon. We are hoping to see our weather balloon reach an altitude of 90,000 to 100,000 feet! The balloon will be launched on April 25th at 9:05 am in the Fox Hollow Field.
