Near Space Technology

A group of technology enthusiasts with backgrounds in engineering and aviation, we collaborate to define our experiments and carry them out between the ground and the middle layers of the stratosphere using lighter-than-air flight technology.

This was our first "Sol et Luna" project. We launched a weather balloon with a payload attached that was designed to be a stable platform for high altitude photography.  Our research in this mission taught us a great deal.

More learnings from SL-2, we launched a lighter payload with a larger parachute in Laramie, WY. The weather wasn't what we hoped it would be, but all in all the mission was a success.

Taking learnings from SL-1, we launched an improved capsule in Flagstaff, AZ. While not all aspects proved  perfect, the outcome was spectacular.

Gila Bend, Arizona.  This launch will be timed to capture video of the lights of the Phoenix Metro Area and a sunrise!

Experimental confirmation of a prediction is merely a measurement.   An experiment disproving a prediction is a discovery.
