More Eclipse Info

More interesting information on the solar eclipse.

They will have 15 groups in Tennessee launching these.
These will travel up to around 100,000 ft before bursting, then will descend via parachute at 3000 ft per minute.
These will be capturing video that will be uploaded to NASA.
We may be monitoring in case they land around here to recover them.

Please feel free to direct anyone wanting to know about our Aug. 21 flight to this page. It contains the relevant operating frequencies for those who will want to work the balloon repeater.
