This project was originally conceived as the most economic way to get a homemade probe to space.
The first version of the balloon has already been launched, although I haven't finished uploading logs yet.
The second version is still a WIP, but I plan to put that up here as well. The parts list is for the second balloon.
Here is the github page for my project.
The sensors each probe was equipped with include the following:
- GPS - latitude, longitude, speed, climb, altitude, time
- Barometer - pressure, temperature, altitude
- Horizontal Camera - pictures of the horizon (curvature of the Earth?)
- Downward Camera - pictures of the receding ground
