757 Labs A Hackerspace in Hampton Roads, Virginia.


Hackerspaces in Space (space… space… space…)

Thursday saw a rather last minute meeting. Attendance was light, but moving forward is always good. At least until we need to move up.

For those of you that couldn't make it, or didn't find out about it until it was too late, the mailing list is working. Please, show it some love. If you're part of the project, and not on the list, contact Ethan or myself to be added.

  1. I did a Near Space Balloon Project about four years ago. Most groups doing this are in the Western states. Here on the East Coast, we have a real disadvantage; all our weather predominately comes from the West, meaning that anything launched will get blown out to sea.

    Q: How do you guys intend to deal with that?

  2. @Flight_Data_Recorder: We’ve been worrying about that as well. So far there are a few elaborate plans (eg: attempting to guide the payload in free-fall before popping the chute) but most likely we will be driving quite a bit west for the launch.

    • Geoff;

      Can I join this project? There’s supposed to be a Mailing List, but haven’t figured out how to get on it. Thanks.

  3. Geoff;

    >attempting to guide the payload in free-fall before popping the chute

    If you’re serious about that, have a look at http://members.shaw.ca/sonde/

    The meeting on Thursday May 20th; is that at Kelley’s Tavern or 233 W Bute St?
