The Students for the Exploration and Development of Space challenge you to design, build, and fly a high altitude balloon carrying a unique payload under an extremely short timeline. This challenge serves to engage members at a local level and build experience dealing with near-space flight hardware, working with an interdisciplinary team, and deadline-dependent deliverables.
The challenge is simple – build a less than 6 lb. payload to fly on a weather balloon.
The timeline is short – All payloads must launch prior to May 31st, 2014.
The winners will be creative – Three teams will be selected based on the novelty of their payloads as shown with a poster that can presented at the SpaceVision Conference. The first place team will win 5 registrations for SpaceVision 2014.
And good luck!
