Tomorrow is Launch Day

After 6 months of hard work, launch day is nearly upon us! We have spent today doing our final checks, tying parachutes to cord and making sure we are prepared for tomorrow.

Payload ready for lift off.
Don't forget you can track the progress of the balloon yourself by going to in the morning. Lift off is 10am. Hopefully everything goes to plan and we get some nice photos and video!

This looks a lot more manageable than last weeks prediction!

  1. Best of luck guys.
    By the way the TK102 GSM tracker worked okay, a little unsteady as it needed about 20 minutes to settle down and send out text messages after landing. It seemed to eventually recover from its trip to high altitude just fine.
