High Altitude Balloon Launch – Attempt 2


My friends and I have just arrived in Coulee City in Eastern Washington to make another attempt at launching our balloon to near space!

The last time we tried to launch, we could only do a tethered test because, as you can see above, we had serious fog issues.

You can download this KML file and open it up in Google Earth and watch the flight in real time.

We’re hoping to launch tomorrow at 3:00 PM. Wish us good weather!
