Girls Inc. Launch – 6/24/14

This is our second year of involvement incorporating high-altitude ballooning in the Girls Inc. activities.

Here is a short article and video from WOWT covering the launch.

Dr. Dana Richter-Egger teaches chemistry at UNO and is the director of their Math Science Learning Center. We have helped him with ballooning experiences for summer camps over the last few years. This launch took place at the UNO campus in the Pep Bowl which is a nice open green space.

The following photos were taken from the camera pod.

The balloon made it to around 96,000 ft. After last week’s tree landing, it looks like we just missed having another tree recovery.
