20605930 44Bec345F9 S In June, some members of Texas A&M’s AggieSat team went to the Student Hands-On Training I workshop in Boulder. There, we built “balloonsats” containing cameras with timing circuits. Some of these photos were taken from these boxes attached to a weather balloon that went to 95,000 feet. All of the boxes except Texas A&M’s “A-Team” box were cubic. The A-Team’s unique hexagonal design and the M-Team’s stunning bird’s-eye photos of it earned Texas A&M the design award at the event Link.
