Space Blimp – Launch 6

January 17, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Space Blimp – Launch 6 – Rockville RSC Makerspace (Rockville, MD) | Meetup

  • 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 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.
