May 20th Success!

On May 20th 2012, we launched 2 balloons from coordinates 44.6652, -93.2866 (Casperson Park in Lakeville MN) with payloads created by Cub Scout Pack 270.
We also sent up a GoPro HD camera, temperature trackers, a relative humidity tracker, an accelorometer, and of course GPS trackers.
It was a cloudy day – most of our other launches have been relatively clear. Our Go Pro and still camera captured some amazing images.
We had a fantastic time meeting all the Scouts and it was an honor to help them get their payloads to near space and back!
