GPSL 2009

Tomorrow begins the ninth annual Great Plains Super Launch. I hosted the first two and am now doing it again. The first GPSL (in 2001) was a single day event and launched three weather balloons. This year is another first. It's three days old, we have a tour of Garmin, and we're watching the Topeka Premiere of the movie, Blast!

I'm launching a near spacecraft carrying the following experiments.
Thermopile Telescope
Weather Station
Geiger Counter
Still Digital Camera
Two Digital Video Cameras

Mark Conner is predicting great weather for Saturday's launch. I'm really looking forward to GPSL this year. I'm the only person to attend them all.

Onwards and Upwards
