Balloon Project
Teams are now working on the muon detector, high-altitude bacteria exposure experiment, and detachment mechanisms for the UAV glider launch.

The new payload design will be finishing construction shortly, awaiting final 3D printing.

A flora density mapping program is underway for use on the regular and pico-balloons.
UK Rover Project

The Competion by RAL Space has been officially announced! Preliminary research has started on mechanical design this year. Early project roles will soon be assigned.

EU Rover Project
