The Balloon Launch was... A HUGE SUCCESS!

At 4:30pm yesterday, the Robotics club (along with the help of Mr. Underwood, Mr. Priestley, and Mr. Nicholson) successfully launched their balloon up to a height of 105,000 feet! Predictions show that the balloon landed 2 hours and 20 minutes later near Scunthorpe!

This was a great test of the equipment and we've learnt a lot from the experience. Next time we're going to go bigger and better!

Watch the video below to see what happened yesterday, along with drone footage of the launch (thanks Mr. Chamberlain)!
