Later this month, Edge of Space, Inc. will conduct a near space stratospheric education mission that will reach 20+ miles altitude, the beginning of space. This launch will take place in Pennsylvania over Memorial Day weekend, during a launch window of May 28-30. Conducted in partnership with Arete Stem Project, our flight - the first in a series we plan to launch with our partners at Arete - will feature several educational experiments that comprise the core of the mission, including an experiment from Lake Arthur Elementary School in Lake Arthur, LA, along with other payloads that will extend outreach and awareness about space flight.
We are especially proud to partner with Brookwood Community in Houston, TX, in launching an outreach and education payload that will give Brookwood's special needs Citizens the opportunity to become involved in an actual space flight for the first time!
We'll post more details on this flight in the coming days, so check back!
