About the Project
Located in Huntsville Alabama, United States, the Space Hardware Club at the University of Alabama Huntsville, will deploy five super pressure balloons over the course of the winter season. The balloons are equipped with WSPR tracking equipment with the goal of circumnavigating the globe, sampling the lower Stratosphere, and broadcasting the SHC website. To view the main Space Hardware Club website, click on “SHC Main Site.” To go to a in-depth data visualization site that displays different atmospheric variables and where our balloons have gone, click on “ASH Data Visualization.” To join the adventure and help our club build a global community, please comment below on where you are from and how you heard our balloons, or what you think of the project.
Any amount will help our club grow to be the best it can be! Thank you!

Hi, nice site. My superpressures made it from Berlin to Kazakhstan, 7000km. My balloons transmitted in WSPR as well. I'm quite fluent in electronics but I'm not so familiar with the mechanics and physics of the balloon. Can you give a pointer to information about your balloon: type of foil, volume, glued or melted, Helium or Hydrogen etc. .
