Project Horus (projecthorus.org/) is a high altitude balloon experimenters group with the aim of flying helium balloons to altitudes of ~30km (>100,000ft). The group is based in Adelaide, South Australia and has been conducting flights now for nearly 2 years.
The flight of Horus 19 was a special payload - prepared for indie band "Skipping Girl Vinegar" (skippinggirlvinegar.com/), whom are based out of Melbourne. This is the "behind the scenes" engineering look at the action involved in launching, flying, tracking and recovering the payload.
