High Altitude Balloon at the Boy Scouts National Jamboree
On July 25th, 2017, team Magnitude.io had an incredible experience launching a high altitude balloon at the National Boy Scouts Jamboree. The Mt. Diablo Silverado Venture Scouts began learning how to capture atmospheric conditions with the sensors on the CanSat a few months before the event through a series of lectures and engineering challenges. This included weather modeling, flight path predictions, and arranging for FAA flight approval by filing a Notice to Airmen.
Everyone in the National Jamboree was courteous, engaging, and curious while learning from each other. The event was organized and clean. A model city popped up through tents and camps as far as you could see. Kudos to the Boy Scouts leadership. Imagine having this entire camp on the Moon, they can colonize the Moon and build a city in record speed!
Maybe Mars is next!
