Hello, I am looking for help for Gishwhes 2017. Myself and my team know very little regarding balloon launching and this seems like a great place to start. Would anyone be willing to help out? Here is the item we are looking to get:
(Time-lapse up to 1 minute but preferably under 30 seconds.) Loo goes to space! A person named Loo won our NASA email contest last Fall, and Loo’s prize is out of this world. Write “Loo” on a paper airplane and launch it from the stratosphere (or higher). We must CLEARLY see you writing the name on the paper airplane and folding it, the paper airplane’s journey into space, and then the actual launch where the plane is released from the stratosphere from whatever vehicle has conveyed it to those heights (high-altitude weather balloons are an acceptable means of conveyance). Oh, and one more thing: the paper airplane must be decorated and must have a message on it about a secret, global conspiracy to make the world a better place. It should also have your team name written on it and the following email address: with the instructions: “If found please email picture of airplane and location found to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can help with this, I would greatly, greatly appreciate it! This hunt ends on August 12 at 10:59 PM Pacific Time. If you are planning to launch before this date, please get in touch with me ASAP to discuss details. Thank you for reading this!
