Don't Miss September Meeting!

harbor1Weber State University faculty members John Sohl, Ph.D. and Dr. John Armstrong will be at our meeting to introduce us to the HARBOR program. HARBOR ("High Altitude Reconnaissance Balloon for Outreach and Research") is a high altitude balloon system designed to be a near-space platform for research projects in science and engineering.

Dr. Armstrong is the principal investigator and John is the instrumentation lead for the project. The July 19, 2009 launch of HARBOR reached an altitude of 98,432ft ASL!

 

 

 

 

Lots of great information, pictures, and video can be found at the HARBOR website.

We will be in a different room for the UROC September meeting. You still need to sign in at the security desk in the North building but the actual meeting room will be in the South building in room S1002. The sherrif at the north building can direct you there if you have not been to that room before.
