Another Flight into the Black

On Sunday May 1st we send Away 120 to the edge of space. This was our 184th mission.

Away 120 carried PongSats, MiniCubes, a balloon valve experiment, a plasma rocket engine experiment and a new solar panel for the Ascender. We had high winds all during prep and launch making things a bit more exciting.  We recovered the vehicle three hours after landing. The team is all back safe and sound. We’re now diving into the data and sorting PongSats.

  1. Well done and thank you! Looking forward to seeing how my student’s “life support” system did on the flight.
