Countryside Launch Pad

We have filed with NAVCAN our launch details and plan to use the back field of Countryside Village Public School as the site for our #spaceinquiry high altitude balloon launch.

Details in summary,

We plan to launch a HAB (high altitude balloon) between the dates of May 12th and May 15th.  The 800gram balloon will be 150 cm at release from Countryside Village Public School at 43.776667N / -79.785W and consist of a payload system length ~20 ft on ascent and a payload weight of ~1.4kg that will rise at a rate of 950fpm (feet per minute).  The expected burst altitude is above 90, 000 ft and the balloon is expected to be near 22 feet in diameter upon burst.  The payload will descend below a neon orange/green 3ft parachute about about 60km Northwest of the Launch site.
