The High Altitude Balloon Club (HABC) is a student organization that conducts experiments in near-space environments by utilizing inexpensive sounding balloons. We are currently working to develop a more sophisticated control system to enable more advanced options such as: altitude control, mission termination, and smart data collection. Some of our past missions have included:

  • commercial contract work with the Japanese television companies
  • a study focusing on the Aurora Borealis
  • a geo-caching event promoting the launch of Mass Effect 3

Our organization is free to join and open to all students! We meet Thursdays at 5:30 in HRBB 028.
