Be on the lookout for BTS-1Y, a high-altitude balloon payload. Purple line is a predicted flight path. Light blue is what we have of the actual path. Green is Dan (KK4DAN) driving around looking for it, and dark blue is a short bit of Brian (WX4BK), Blake (N4BWR), and I when we were still beaconing. The various pins are different predicted landing sites. The two red are from the same source, but one assumes an 800 foot per minute ascent rate and the other is 500 FPM

I've joined this high altitude ballooning forum. This should be fun

BTS-1 got a mention in amateur radio magazine QST

Now you can go to near space just like me

This morning's balloon trajectory prediction has to be one of the strangest I've seen. We traveled 50 or 60 miles, but landed only 9 miles from the launch site

The fancy kind of spacecraft you need to explore almost zero atmospheric pressure and space-like conditions

I'm sharing this again. We had to delete it because it wasn't posted in the correct YouTube channel. Now you can share away! :)
