We want to go... where no club has ever gone before!
Our plan is to send a helium balloon with a small payload into the upper atmosphere. This payload will contain a video camera, a GPS, and all the rewards from our generous benefactors. Last but not least, it will have a parachute to slow down its descent.
C.B. East Physics Club is a completely student-created club, completely funded by students, we receive no funding of any kind from the school. :( We used to be able to raise funds through bake sales, but our school has disallowed this.
Risks and challenges
Like all space launches, there is a certain element of risk involved. We cannot guarantee the safe return of the payload. Obviously, we will do everything in our power to ensure the safe return of our baby!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
