On Saturday, April 6th, Science Heads successfully launched its third High Altitude Balloon (HAB3). In the payload are experiments designed by students from La Paz Intermediate (Mission Viejo) and Woodbridge High School (Irvine). The balloon reached an altitude of 110,000 feet (20.8 miles) and traveled approximately 70 miles. We are currently in the process of recovering the payload from the side of Palomar Mountain.
This launch would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors and volunteers. Thank you! We will be posting pictures and video of the launch very soon.
