Our third weather balloon had GPS failure shortly after launch. Hopefully, someone will be kind enough to call the number on the payload. Everyone cross your fingers in hope we get everything back!Read more...
This is so awesome. Derek Sigler's project, which included a team at Arch Reactor, sent a balloon today to 100,000 ft with a few cameras and were able to locate the payload when it came back down. This is a picture he posted from 97,000 feet above the earth. This is very inspiring. It has been such a good day. Congratulations Derek and the team that launched it!!! Very impressive.
Video of the balloon burst, 42 seconds in, is available here.
Sunday November 4th we had the first Arduino for Artists class. The class was well attended. Derek covered many of the basics and demonstrated the versatility the Arduino platform provides. The last hour of the session was turned into a working session where individuals were free to persue their own Arduino projects and get troubleshooting advice. The link below is a Google Docs presentation from the beginning of the class. Join us next Sunday for the second class in the series "Arduino for Artists".
Sunday November 11th we will have the second session. If you can't make it in person join the G+ hangout!
