Welcome to Operation Helios. We are three students who participate in the hobby of High Altitude Ballooning. We began working on this project in mid 2010. After resolving many extremely complex and unexpected obstacles we managed to launch a balloon in April, 2012. We are still very much involved in High Altitude Ballooning and plan to launch again in April, 2013. This second launch will have significant exciting improvements over the previous. We will attempt to frequently update this blog as we progress.
Take a look at the posts section for our latest updates.
