Project Horus High altitude balloon project


LaunchBox Launch, and upcoming PicoHorus launch

The LaunchBox launches went well, with both balloons launched and recovered. Some details available here, more to follow...

We still have about 1.5m^3 of helium left over from the launch, which we plan on using to launch a pico floater balloon early in the morning on Saturday the 15th of November. This launch will be flying a PicoHorus payload, transmitting 50 baud RTTY on 434.650MHz.

The flight path has it heading from Adelaide towards Victoria, arriving near Melbourne sometime late Saturday afternoon. If the payload floats as intended, it should then head back towards South Australia.
