First launch set for September 2014

Exciting news! Our first schools balloon launch will take place in the 3rd week of September 2014, from Mount Barker. We're teaming up with Project Horus and 10 secondary schools from the Adelaide area to send Launchbox Kits into the stratosphere using high altitude balloons.

Project Horus is an amateur high altitude balloon project based in Adelaide, Australia. The aim of the project is to build and fly low cost weather balloon payloads into the stratosphere, capturing photographs, recording sensor data and providing a reliable launch platform for high altitude experiments.
