About this project

Lately the world has been turned on its head with all sorts of misinformation disinformation and just plain lies. We are striving to change that through crowd-sourced independent research. The very first project which this Kickstarter is attempting to fund is to take steps to understand the nature of this planet that we call Earth. Recently a lot of talk about our planet has gone around the table about whether or not our planet is a globe or some sort of flat disc. Now we know that we will most certainly not be able to debunk this myth with $5000. What we do hope to accomplish is simple. 

1. Establish Crowdsourced Independent Research Organization

2. Launch 1-3 weather balloons with cameras attached in order to view the earth from as high in the atmosphere as we can get. (If 3 are used we will attempt to stitch together data from all 3 cameras to create a composite analysis of the photographs)

3. Live Stream the event in an attempt at full disclosure and transparency. 

4. Use remaining funds for further surveying of the planet and other independent research excursions. 

Risks and challenges

As with all projects there are challenges. I feel that our first project in its bare form should not have too many challenges. I do anticipate some logistical challenges arranging locales, dates and times which may delay launch. Also we will have to make sure we are complying with all local, state and federal regulations( something we admittedly no nothing about...yet). If we successfully launch 3 balloons we will most certainly have some challenges to face with composite analysis of the photographs. If we are successful enough with the data collection we will most certainly be seeking outside consult for the analysis and may require further backing depending on funds remaining. We will be completely transparent with our budget as to allow our backers to know exactly how their funds are being spent.
