    Hello Everyone,

    We have our HAB back in NH and we have successfully extracted the video and data from the platform. Our HAB flew to 91,650 ft in about 3 hours and 10 minutes. The descent took about 50 minutes. The total flight time was just about 4 hours – quite a bit longer than we had planned. The GoPro cameras on board captured the first 2 hours and 40 minutes of the flight – their recording ended around 80,000 ft. Here’s what our HAB saw at that altitude –

    The balloon was about 6 ft in diameter at launch –

    and here’s a picture from the recovery site in Rhode Island –

    Note that the balloon was found partially intact at the recovery site – an interesting outcome for us to analyze.

    Here’s what the upward looking camera on our HAB saw –

    Here’s the path that our HAB took during its flight from aprs.fi –

    Much more to come…
