Freshman year engineering project at UMass Amherst evaluating a model of a payload's descent from the upper atmosphere. The balloon was under-inflated and travelled farther downrange than expected, descending off the coast of MA and then recovered days later on Plum Island, MA. Altitude was calculated in excess of 100,000ft. Pictures and tracking were obtained using a reprogrammed camera and cell phone.

Special Thanks To:

Song Used:
Owl City - Hot Air Balloon
