Touching the Heavens: Project Daedalus

383 views 1 month ago
The Amherst College Electronics Club (ACE) recently launched a weather balloon to the stratosphere, where it topped 100,000 feet, also known as "near-space," and brought back valuable data, as well as beautiful video and still photographs. The goal of their mission, given the Greek mythology name of "Project Daedalus," was not only to touch the heavens, but also be part of something that personifies terras irradient, and share it with the rest of the world.
