how doable would it be to balloon a set of mini rockets, then right before balloon pops, ignite the rockets and send small robots to the moon, no?
I'm still searching for a way to upload csv files via upload form and then displaying them via dygraphs. but uploading files via form of course is not a jekyll/github thing
though tbf, I think it was entirely mysql that shit the bed a couple days ago and is the reason I have to reinstall, and also causing me installation grief again
you would save the fuel/weight needed to get to stratosphere
A rockoon (from and ) is a solid fuel sounding rocket that, rather than being immediately lit while on the ground, is first carried into the upper atmosphere by a gas-filled balloon, then separated from the balloon and ignited.

that's a good question, wolf, you should ask it on the event page so it gets asked by the moderator
Ok, I know you all get sick of me talking about this but I am subscribed to one of the best Online Security Newsletters in the business called HackerNews and I keep seeing these types of articles on almost a Quarterly basis. Last time Jan 2018 I posted something like this I was challenged and told that WordPress had "Just" upgraded with a new version of their product that just got out of months of testing. I predicted it would be hacked in 3 months and no less than a week later it was hacked. There HAVE been other hacks and issues since and here is the latest! See: https://thehackernews.com/2018/06/wordpress-hacking.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheHackersNews+%28The+Hackers+News+-+Security+Blog%29&_m=3n.009a.1774.ry0ao0750c.130n
ehhh, everything has security flaws that get discovered, wordpress just has a huuuge attack surface and is very high profile
I think is doable, we could send cube sats extremely cheap, and small moon missions carrying small rovers for exploration and research as well
as long as you stay on top of wordpress updates, it's safe
many people don't, though :)
Back to the High Altitude thing... I'm having trouble finding a source for Balloons at a reasonable price. I used to have a source for Military Weather Balloons but that dried up and online pricing sucks on ice..
have you checked out Aliexpress?
@JImmyMoe what country are you in?
I think I recall some decent ones for $100 or $200 or so
although asking about sources is something good to write on the event page
Ya' Seriously Jarrett, No Lie the last WordPress Site I was asked to work on was 72 updates behind.. For Freaking REAL!
why don't you set it to auto update?
@JImmyMoe - that's a great question for the Hack Chat. Please ask Jeremy and Jason when we start.
Wolf, It wasn't my problem until I was asked to look at it.
anfractuosity, I'm in the State of Wisconsin in the USA.
ah, was gonna mention http://www.randomengineering.co.uk/Random_Aerospace/Balloons.html but that's not gonna help you
Jarrett. Yup, If you have a source for better priced Weather Balloons Let me know. What size where those?
