 Aims 


In this project, we set the following requirements which we intend to achieve:

  • Photograph showing the curvature of the Earth
  • Record pressure and temperature as a function of time
  • Record latitude, longitude and altitude as a function of time
  • Recoverable payload
  • Legal launch, flight and recovery
  • 500 budget

We also set a number of goals, which we would strive to achieve, but are not considered essential
for the success of the project:
  • High Definition video of the flight
  • Record humidity as a function of time
  • Live data download over the duration of the flight
