Husky High Altitude Balloon

Day 1: We visited North Conway and the Mt Washington Discovery Center and then traveled to Plymouth State University and the Judd Gregg Meteorology Institute.

Day 2: We launched a 60gm (Husky I) prototype balloon with a GoPro attached, which recorded photos. It reached a height of 450 feet.

Day 3: We launched Husky II (600 gm prototype). We recorded live video and reached a height of almost 900 feet. The group is now constructing Husky III (1,200gm) with a GoPro. We are hoping to reach a height of over 110,00 feet. Estimated launch time: March 7, noon. Come by and watch the launch!
