Launch Site Upgrades

We’ve put together a new launch apron at our Area 42 research site in Nevada.

Added a second shipping container, a twelve foot high fence and 60 yards of gravel. This gives us a 50 foot by 40 foot wind protected launch area. It will work great for balloon missions as well as the smaller airship test flights. The new container will be workshop space and mission control.

The fence is on the upwind side for morning launches.

Instant building!

In the coming weeks we’ll be adding solar and outfitting the new space.
