SASM AIM Camp – 6/27/13

We had interesting weather the morning of this launch.


Because of the wind gusts and rain associated the potential storm, it was decided to prep the equipment in the hanger at the Strategic Air and Space Museum.


The balloon was then walked outside for the launch.


We had to wait a while until the GPS locked on our command module with the heavy cloud cover. Once it did, we were go for launch.


It came down in waist-high corn about 50 ft from the road which was right off I-29. The students were able to make use of their newly acquired GPS skills to make this a fairly painless recovery.
