UKHAS Amateur Balloon Conference 2012


Balloon from BALSAMINE with Mini Moke - 1979, LMD France

The United Kingdom High Altitude Society’s 2nd Annual Conference, Sept 22, 2012, in London, UK, will feature high altitude balloon talks from several balloonists, including myself, this year in person!  I gave a talk last year on a few challenges facing small superpressure balloon development.  Since then I have discovered much an incredible amount of historical information on the subject.  This year I will be speaking about the fascinating engineering history of hundreds of small superpressure balloon test flights that have taken place around the world since 1950.

Watch live at the UKHAS conference page.  After the conference, expect video, slides and references on that site, as well as my ballooning advice website, High Altitude Balloon Consulting.
