We have been invited to participate in a hackerspace space-blimp challenge. I'm attaching the pdf of information I received but in summary, we have to launch a blimp or weather balloon into near space, retrieve it, and submit the pictures. Official launches are to take place between June 1 and August 31, we can have up to 10 people on the team representing Squidwrench, and one of us shall participate in the Event Board to act as a judge.
Anybody interested? I'm sure we can find the expertise we need, so don't worry about what you can bring to the team. We should at least start researching if we think we'd like to do it.
