PWr Aerospace makes it to the podium at the Global Space Balloon Challenge


A project prepared by students from the PWr Aerospace scientific club finished third in the Best Design category at the international Global Space Balloon Challenge 2017 competition.

PWr Aerospace is formed by students of Wroclaw Technical University joined by the common passion – space exploration and aerospace technologies. They conduct tests and examinations of gondolas of balloons sent to the stratosphere. They are also planning to build sounding rockets.

During the Global Space Balloon Challenge, their gondola measured e.g. temperature, pressure, altitude, and voltage produced in a photovoltaic panel. It was also possible to monitor cargo distribution during flight with the use of a dedicated APRS communication system.

We're very happy and we're sending our congratulations on the success!
