Day 34: High-Altitude Balloon Preparation

This coming Sunday, we will launch a high-altitude balloon. We just picked this date a few days ago and started preparing last Friday. We have a lot to do, but this year’s launch is less complicated than the last one and we aren’t trying anything completely new. We do however need to update our Arduino-based data logging and cutdown mechanism since it didn’t perform as desired last time. Today during lunch, a student was soldering the cutdown hardware mechanism and I was working on the software. It’s going to be a busy week!
