Today’s the day!
Mach 30 President, J. Simmons and volunteer, Jeremy Wright are in Chicago to begin documenting Open Design Engine‘s first High Altitude Balloon project.
This project is a partnership between Adler Planetarium‘s Far Horizons Project and Albuquerque’s Hackerspace, Quelab. Adler is providing the design for the balloon, Quelab will build and launch the balloon, and Mach 30 is providing project hosting space on Open Design Engine and project coordination.
As an added bonus, Mach 30 will also be participating in this weekend’s launch.
Watch this space throughout the weekend for new videos, updates and more!
You can watch the first design meeting live here–unless the meeting is over, then you should be able to see the video playback.
