On Saturday, April 21st, Science Heads launched it’s first High Altitude Balloon. In the payload were 5 student experiments from local schools. The balloon and payload reached the edge of space (approximately 109,000 feet or 20.6 miles in altitude) and landed in the inland empire.
Included in the payload was a GoPro camera which recorded the entire ascent and descent. We are now busy producing a video which will be posted here when complete.
Below are pictures taken by some of our volunteers.
We are planning to launch two more HABs during the next school year. Stay tuned for details.
Since Science Heads is entirely funded through donations – it’s support from people like you that make it possible for us to inspire students and adults with projects like our HAB program.
Thank you for supporting Science Heads,
