Hi everyone! Myself (Jeff Williams) and my partner Ben Serano are back in action here at the Aerospace Research Lab at Capitol Technology University in Laurel, MD. We had an extremely successful high altitude balloon flight back in November, 2014 with the Maryland Space Grant Consortium. One of two Capitol Projects, Project TRAPSat, flew on the balloon alongside several payloads from the University of Maryland. The other Capitol Project, Project HERMES, unfortunately could not make it to the launch due to several Design Reviews for an upcoming rocket launch at Wallop’s Island, VA this summer. However, both projects are planning on flying on at least one of the two planned high altitude launches this spring.
Information on these two projects can be found at the following links:
