Joint EE&T and MME Stratospheric Balloon Launch

Light Balloon Launch 2 (Muswellbrook, NSW, Australia) - Flight footage supercut

The BLUEsat team, mentored by Dr Elias Aboutanios, successfully launched a stratospheric balloon from Muswellbrook and safely recovered its payload, consisting of a control computer, tracking equipment and two GoPro cameras. The balloon rose to a height of 25,000m, and was tracked by using Spot GPS and an APRS tracker, both through the APRS network and through our own receiving station with software developed by the BLUEsat team. This successful mission is a great step towards our goal of building reliable stratospheric balloon launch capabilities to take payloads to an altitude of 35-40km and recover them safely.
