Beckies 44:

we won!!!

Congratulations to the Disco Beckies for winning Best Overall Team in the NASA/NC SpaceGrant 2018 Community College High Altitude Balloon Launch Team Challenge and Competition

Durham Tech has been participating in the NC Space Grant High Altitude Ballooning Competition for the last three years. This year's team, the Disco Beckies 44, is hoping to fly a low cost, experimental unit that will improve the sample size for gas collection sensors without creating a pressure vessel. 


They are working hard to meet all of their milestones before the big launch in April.
