West Ranch High School Astronomy Class Selects Live Oak Elementary School to Launch Second Weather Balloon this Month
It was a very exciting morning at Live Oak Elementary School as the West Ranch High School Astronomy Class launched their weather balloon while our students watched and cheered them on!
The payload includes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a Lego astronaut, Tardigrades (water bears) which are said to survive in extreme conditions, as well as some preserved jellyfish.
If all goes well, the balloon will land somewhere between the Tehachapi mountains and San Gabriel mountains. Below is a link to the site where you can track the balloon, as well as data gathered:https
There will also be a feed that posts to Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag is #stratostar0321.
