On Saturday, April 6th, Science Heads successfully launched its third High Altitude Balloon (HAB3). In the payload were 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. The main experiment payload was recovered from the side of Palomar Mountain in San Diego county.
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.
