MSP team setting up the balloon for launch
Ascent of DOGE1
The apex of the balloons ascent was 100,000 feet (30 kilometers) this is near space as the picture from the on-board camera shows.
We were able to track the balloon because of the community developed electronics in the payload which provided gps, barometric and radiometric data.
After a couple of hours, Harvinder and Pete were able to retrieve the payload and camera.
