"A High-Altitude Balloon Platform for Near Space Experimentation"

Performing experiments in near-space environments can be prohibitively expensive. The Yerraloon project aims to provide a solution to this in the form of a high-altitude balloon mounted platform. Two teams of engineering students from ANU have worked on realising this goal throughout 2018, creating a prototype which has seen a successful flight. This presentation will showcase the progress made by the two ANU teams on the project thus far.
