Global Space Balloon Challenge

The Global Space Balloon Challenge is an initiative to inspire makers to build their own High Altitude Balloons and launch them into space using their own hardware:

The Global Space Balloon Challenge is an international education outreach project to encourage people from around the world to build and launch their own high altitude balloons. Over a single weekend, teams from all over the world will launch balloons to the edge of space, recover them, and share the photos and data that they have collected. Our goal is to encourage people of all ages to get their hands dirty building their own space hardware, and to promote the spirit of hardware hacking and international STEM collaboration.

The launches will be between April 18 – 21, 2014, and will take place in countries across the world! So far we already have teams signed up from the US, UK, Spain, Australia, and Japan… and the list keeps growing!

The challenge will include competitions for Best Photograph, Best Design, and Highest Altitude. More details and prize information coming soon!
