Balloon Launch (fallback)

August 26 @ 10:00 - 15:00

This is the fallback launch date in case we are unable to launch on Saturday 25th.

We are aiming to launch our first high altitude balloon in conjunction with the Radio Communication Museum’s Technology Club, weather permitting. Provisional launch time is 10:00 am.

There will be activities at the launch site (location to be decided), the museum (mission control) and in the chase vehicles (to recover the balloons and payload.)

Attendance is open to any museum code or technology club members and their families as well as Derby Makers and their families.

Donations to help fund the project will be gratefully received.
