Youngsters to launch eclipse balloon

| June 30, 2017

The two daughters of Winston, KI7CSK, Rebecca and Kimberley, are planning to launch a new high-altitude Balloon mission with APRS tracking for the North American solar eclipse on 21 August 2017.

The sisters will be working alongside other citizen scientists in a campaign called the Eclipse Ballooning Project, which will be gathering high-altitude data during the total phase of August’s eclipse.

Video and photos from the flights will be shared with NASA and the world.
