About the Project
Located in Huntsville Alabama, United States, students at the University of Alabama Huntsville, deploy micro super pressure balloon satellites. The balloons are equipped with WSPR tracking equipment with the goal of circumnavigating the globe, sampling the lower Stratosphere, and broadcasting this website. To learn more about our current and past flights, click on the tab "Mission Reports." You can also click on the other tabs to learn more about our supporters and other research. To join the adventure and help us students 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. .
