RSC Makerspace, Space Blimp – Launch 7
February 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Space Blimp – Launch 7
Come join a new challenging project at the RSC Makerspace, “Space Blimp”.
This is a high-altitude balloon employing scientific monitoring devices as it ascends to heights of 100,000+ ft. (see this wiki (https://wiki.hacdc.org/index.php/HacDC_Spaceblimp) for past efforts and info)
Our group will create a device package and plan for the variety of difficult issues that occur at high altitude. If you have interest in atmospheric, environmental, and/or space science, radio telemetry, or just interested in great projects – please join us bi-weekly at the Rockville Library Makerspace on Wednesdays 6:30pm.
This is joint project with members of Rockville Science Center and HacDC.
