NEUDOSE Above the Clouds

McMaster NEUDOSE's science instrument, the Dosimetric Instrument for Near-earth Orbit (DINO), has been selected as one of twelve international payloads selected to fly in a high altitude air balloon. This September, our DINO will soar above the clouds at an altitude of 36km!

The High Altitude Student Platform program is supported by NASA's Balloon Program Office and Louisiana State University's Louisiana Space Consortium (LaSPACE). We are very excited to work with these groups to launch and test our radiation detector system in an elevated radiation environment!
