Welcome to the announcement page for the Skyward Sword project at Ru.
This week or next, we will be launching balloon(s) with a variety of tracking and HD video cameras. The launch is expected to take place near RU. This project is a collaboration between RU staff, the VT HUN1013 "Hönnun" class, CCP, Siminn, and the Icelandic Radio Amateurs.
The balloon should reach an altitude in excess of 30000 meters with a flight time of 2 hours. We will be tracking the balloon using a variety of methods including GPS and APRS. There may even be a live video feed over 3G for part of the flight.
