Mission Accomplished! – PocketFinder in Space Part 2

Balloon Project Launch

Wow what a journey! PocketFinder® successfully reached over 106,685 feet inside the payload designed and launched by the High Altitude Balloon Club at Forrest View Middle School in North Central Minnesota! This was the first time we sponsored a project that would send a PocketFinder into the upper stratosphere. Not surprisingly, this is the highest our devices have ever been so we were excited to see how the devices would perform after being that high. We were very happy when we saw the rugged GPS device come back into wireless range and successfully provide a location.

Not only did the device work under these extreme conditions, but the PocketFinder saved the project from becoming lost when it returned to earth!

The holiday season is a wonderful time of year. It is the time when we focus on the joys of giving and the gratitude of someone else’s generosity. This is a time of year when people consider the different ways they can contribute to causes outside of gift giving within their immediate family.

The world is full of amazing organizations, charities and individuals who volunteer to make them possible. We start to see more of these individuals amongst the chaos of holiday shopping. They take time to stand outside of stores and announce the cause they are fighting for.
