High altitude scientific ballooning near space engineering

High Altitude Scientific Ballooning

(Near Space Engineering)


Background

Background

  • NASA Idaho Space Grant joined the National Space Grant Student Satellite “Crawl, Walk, Run, Fly!” Program in 2003 with introduction of Idaho RISE

  • First element of this program is Crawl: to develop capability to build, test, fly, operate, and recover scientific hardware from high altitude balloons.

  • Next Steps

    Walk: Suborbital/sounding rocket flights

    Run: Satellites for Earth orbit

    Fly: Spacecraft for deep space operations

UI Idaho RISE


Idaho rise

Idaho RISE

  • RISE (Research Involving Student Engineers and Educators) is a state-wide program.

  • Multidisciplinary program involving students from all departments in the College of Engineering, as well as Physics, Chemistry, Life Sciences, Education, and many other departments .

  • Students design, build, test and fly science payloads up to 100,000 ft.

  • UI Chapter of RISE is Idaho VAST: Vandal Atmospheric Science Team

Facts

Facts

  • Commercial airlines cruise between 30,000-40,000ft

    (9-12 km)

  • International Space Station orbits at 1,150,000 ft (350km)

  • Balloons can reach above 100,000 ft (30 km):

    • Pressure: 1% of sea level

      (near vacuum)

    • Temperature -130o F (-90o C)

    • Sky is black

Senior design summary

Senior Design Summary

  • Design a descent probe:

    • Small in size (Ø30 cm)

    • Low mass (3 kg)

    • Aerodynamically stable

    • Instrumented with dynamic andatmospheric sensors

    • Capable of both sending and storing sensor/tracking data real time

  • Design an experiment to test data acquisition, tracking, structural, aerodynamic capabilities


What do i get out of this

“What Do I Get Out Of This?”

  • Hands-on experience applying knowledge build both in and out of class work

  • Build connections and relationships with people from a variety of disciplines and experience levels, including students/faculty connected to NASA

  • Freedom to experiment and learn

    your own way

  • Experience working in groups,

    including Leadership experience
