This talk will describe how to launch and recover high altitude balloons: logistics, regulations, and most importantly the open source hardware and software used. Arduino hackers, amateur radio operators and anyone who likes seeing photos of earth from 35km will enjoy this talk.
Project Horus is a high altitude balloon project run by amateur radio and electronics enthusiasts for fun and experimentation. We launch payloads into the stratosphere, capturing photographs, recording sensor data and provides a launch platform for high altitude experiments.
