I've created a DVD titled, Introduction to High Altitude Ballooning that is 17 minutes in length. If you'd like to receive a copy, please contact me by e-mail. The DVD is available for $15.00 (postage included).
The program is suitable for over the air broadcast and regularly airs on NASA TV.
DVD Case Insert
From lift off through touch down, you'll learn what is required to prepare, launch, and recover a system that will fly 20 miles above of the surface of the earth. The goal of ANSR is to promote science and education through high altitude balloons and amateur radio.
Learn how we...
Launch Vehicle - Utilize a latex weather balloon inflated with Helium to ascend to over 100,000'.
Payloads - Fly standard payloads so groups can focus on the scientific aspects of a flight. The payloads provide a cross band voice repeater, flight data recorder, tracking beacons, and remote command and control.
Tracking and Recovery - Track the payloads during flight, provide maps through the Internet, and predict their landing location in real-time.
The Earth’s Atmosphere – The payloads handle the effects of extremes in temperature, pressure, and winds.
Student Groups – How a student group or educational youth group can participate in our next flight.
If you have viewed the program, I'd like to hear what you thought about it. Please take a minute or two to fill out the On-Line Survey.
