One of the coolest things about Let Them Tweet Cake has been some of the very, very cool people I’ve met including Grace, who is actively involved with LVL1. Thanks to her and her awesomeness I’m so geeked to know about LVL1 and all the cool stuff they have going on like this weekend’s happenings.
I mean an event that includes a concert, science demos and a balloon launchpad demo? Well that’s just cool. What’s the balloon launchpad demo all about you ask?
The goal is to be the first amateurs to send a small robotic weather balloon all the way across the Atlantic Ocean to the other side. That’ll mean landing it in Europe, Africa, or points east. No amateur balloon has ever done this. The farthest amateur flight so far sank just 200 miles short of Ireland in 2008.
Rock on home team! Can we get like “Team Whitestar Balloon” t-shirts or something?
