COSGC's High Altitude Balloon Payload Projects:

Take place every semester - fall, spring, and summer.

Payloads must be under 1kg.

Launches take place in northeastern Colorado and payloads travel to between 80,000 and 100,000 feet (sometimes a bit higher).

Flights provide free access to near space environment on a short-duration flight (~1.5 hours).
