Today at Mini Maker Faire North Carolina, NC Near Space Research will, weather permitting, launch a near space balloon at 2:30pm Eastern time. You’ll be able to monitor its progress at their web site, and if all goes well, it should reach a height of at least 75,000 feet today.

After they recover the payload, they’ll post still pictures and other information captured from the journey.

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.
