SRA Club’s Project Airborne
The Security & Risk Analysis Club has just posted a pretty cool teaser video for a project they are working on:
The SRA Club will be sending a weather balloon to altitudes of 100,000 feet in order to capture aerial imagery of Penn State and the curvature of the Earth. This endeavor will culminate with a launch party on October 31, 2009 to see the package off into the wild blue yonder.
The project is based off of a similar project carried out by MIT students this past summer. Their balloon stayed aloft for over 4 hours.
The project, dubbed Project Airborne, is being run by SRA Club members from across the University:
A critical part of Project Airborne is bringing students from different disciplines together to accomplish a common goal. Luckily, the Security & Risk Analysis Club attracts members from majors all across the University, giving Project Airborne a diverse background. The team is comprised of 13 students from the following majors:
- Security & Risk Analysis
- Information Sciences & Technology
- Chemical Engineering
- Aerospace Engineering
You can be sure that Onward State will be following Project Airborne through launch day, so stay tuned.
