2009 Mission

Balloon 2009

With a successful mission in 2008 behind us, we ran headlong into our 2009 mission. Our science package
included two new on-board data collection experiments, Larry’s mini-weather station and Dad’s accelerometer
experiment. These worked extremely well and provided us with some interesting and ultimately, very useful
data. In addition, we carried Brandi’s school science experiment, a packet of seeds which were to be planted
next to a control set of identical seeds (which stayed behind). They are to be observed as they grow and
differences noted. Here you’ll find links to Dad’s narrative of how the day went as well as a link to our
2009 photo gallery.
