Space Trip Challenge – a video update

Mission Control Cumbria 2014 Challenge…

Our team are designing and building a payload attached to a weather balloon to record still and moving images of the curvature of the Earth. A parachute will then be deployed to bring the payload back down to Earth safely, when we will then collect the device and retrieve the images.

We are well into our mission now and the launch window is fast approaching – this is the period during which the weather will be most favourable for the balloon to launch.
