Stay tuned for further developments...

Having caught up on my blog reading, I realized that we haven't posted in a month. Just wanted to give any readers of this blog a heads-up that we *probably* won't be launching in the near future. I haven't run any of the weather models myself (Daniel's been doing that, while I've been working on some basic air-density models and temperature measurement devices), but the winter winds in NC are likely to carry our balloon far out to sea.

On the temperature front, I ordered some iButtons to log the temperature and humidity of the balloon box, just because we can. I ordered the Thermochron (tempearture only) and Hygrochron (temperature and relative humidity) from iButtonlink. You can learn some neat stuff about the 1-Wire protocol here.
