NE State Fair – 8/31/13

HAB-launchWe tried our first tethered launch at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island. It was clear, but very hot and humid, and we had a large crowd of people to witness the launch.

We had a few goals in mind for this launch – promote our program, try the tether, get good imagery of the fair and all of the people at the launch, and try out the Mobile Observatory as a base station of operations for the balloon flight.
