100,000 ft Up!


Last week our radiation detector system was able to fly 100,000 ft above the ground! As a part of the High Altitude Student Platform program offered by Louisiana State University and the NASA Balloon Office, our payload, and 11 other payloads from universities all over North America, was able to be tested in an elevated environment. Our instrument can be seen in the bottom left corner of the screen. It is an incredible opportunity to launch from New Mexico and test our detector system in the harsh environmental conditions way above the ground.
