We're back From Houston!

December 06, 2017

Our team has made it back to Boise safe and sound! Our payload performed successfully in flight, and brought back good atmospheric data. It also flew above the boundary space twice, soaring to 60,000+ ft above sea level. It couldn't have happened without all your support! 


It was truly an amazing trip and a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with the awesome people at NASA. It was a valuable engineering experience to work through the entire design process, from starting off with rough sketch and ideas, to full CAD models, to actually fabricating and testing the recorder. Thank you again for supporting us on the trip. Go Broncos!



Goal Met!

November 24, 2017

We did it! Thank you all for your generous donations to make this possible! We are all excited to go down to Houston and test our high altitude data recorder. We are all packed and ready to go. It would not be possible for all of us to attend the event without your help. Each member is extremely grateful for each and every one of your donations.  We will be posting some pictures of the trip once we get back. Again, thank you all for your support. Go Broncos!

82% complete

November 14, 2017

We have already raised 82% of our goal in only three days! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to our project. We are all blown away by the kindness and generosity from all the donors who have contributed to our trip. We are very excited for the opportunity to travel to Johnson Space Center. This trip would not be possible without your support! However, There is still work left to do.  Please, keep sharing our campaign with others so we can meet our campaign goal. Thank you again from each member of the SOAR team. Go Broncos!
