4
Mission Overview (cont.)
  • Predictions
  • Optics
  • Attempt to show that ballooning is a cost
    effective alternative

Payload Pre-flight Testing
22
Testing
  • Drop Box
  • Results were good
  • Sturdy construction
  • Circuit tests
  • Connections were good, except one
  • That connection was fixed by Dr. Flaten
  • Heater Test
  • Functions
  • Camera Test
  • Operational
  • IMU
  • Tested data recording capabilities
  • Passed

23
Additional Testing
  • Cold soak test
  • Made sure that payload can handle extreme
    temperature
  • Passed
  • Day-in-the-life Weather test
  • Attempt to alter weather station data to test
    function
  • Passed
  • Yank Test
  • Make sure that the box stays together
  • Passed

24
Results of Testing
  • Our Payload was Ready to Go!
  • (w/ few modifications)

Release
29
Flight Day
  • Status of the payload after the recovery was
    basically the same. Minor scratches from the tree
    landing. Landed roughly 25-30 feet in the air in
    a tree. Retrieved with bolo.
  • Payload was still securely sealed and all the
    instruments seemed to be working inside.
  • Disconnected all batteries and turned off IMU

30
Science Results
31
Expected Science Results
  • HOBO Weather Station (WS)
  • Sensors
  • Internal temperature (HOBO)
  • External temperature (HOBO WS)
  • Relative Humidity (HOBO)
  • Pressure (WS)
  • These sensors will record data similar to Paul
    Verhages

32
Paul Verhages HOBO WS data
33
Expected Science Results
  • Optical Experiment
  • Solar Observation
  • Our hypothesis is
  • It will not be cost effective
  • It may produce quality images of the sun that
    may be difficult to recreate on ground
  • Whether or not we get a good glimpse of the sun
    is arguable
  • IMU
  • Acceleration and movement tracking test
  • Our hypothesis
  • After launch there will be little change
  • Post-burst will be violent, and we will be able
    to track it through the IMU

In-Flight
46
Conclusions
  • External Temperature vs. Time
  • Temperature dropped to about -50 degrees
    Celsius until about the 50 minute mark, then the
    payload entered part of the atmosphere where it
    started heating up to about -15 degrees Celsius,
    which at that point was close to burst, and
    following the burst the temperature rapidly fell
    to the lowest of the flight of -55 degrees
    Celsius.

47
Conclusions
  • Relative Humidity vs. Altitude
  • According the graph, as altitude increased,
    humidity decreased, to as low at 5 around the
    80,000 foot mark.
  • Pressure vs. Altitude
  • As altitude increases the pressure decreases
  • Solar Observation Did not exactly work, need a
    better way of blocking out the sun.
  • IMU results will come later

48
Conclusions
  • Change anything about payload to fly again?
  • Yes, better strategy to block out the sun with
    our HD video camera to get better results.
  • Project Successes
  • Pumpkin design, which ultimately boosts morale of
    the team, which in turn makes them happy, thus,
    makes them work better.
  • Other successes
  • Payload stayed intact, all instruments functioned
    properly.
  • Final Project Successfulness
  • Relatively successful

49
Words of Wisdom
  • Dont drink too much water on the chase, you
    never know when you are going to stop.
  • Think BIG
  • If you assume, you make an a out of u and
    me
  • If you think it might be cold, then it probably
    will be
