  • New Project
    • Balloon pressure release valve
      • Goal: achieve higher altitudes with our payloads
      • Means: cut down part of train at 50,000-70,000ft
        • Lighter payload will allow the balloon to ascend quicker
        • Pressure-release valve should allow balloon to reach higher altitudes before bursting
      • Secondary Goal: Break some altitude records
        • http://www.arhab.org/#
        • 145,590.60 ft - current record on arhab.org
        • World record is 173,900 ft, Japan 2002
  • NASA longitudinal tracking forms
