HAB2 Successfully Launched and Recovered
Science Heads successfully launched its second High Altitude Balloon (HAB2) on Saturday, November 10th, 2018. It carried six (6) student designed experiments.
The balloon and its payload reached an altitude of approximately 15 miles (80,000 feet). We successfully recovered the payload from a wilderness area near Aguanga California. The experiments were returned to the students and they analyzed their data. The students’ papers summarizing their results are listed below.:
Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this possible. Our RCOM, WCOM, LOPS and FOPS teams put in many hours and we greatly appreciate their efforts.
A special thank you to our sponsors: Praxair, SOARA, the City of Lake Forest and OC Drone Photography – who produced the short video above.
