Icarus II Launch 6 – Ash Cloud Observation Attempt

Well this turned out to be a failure. The power save feature on the camera activated before launch and the a camera turned itself off before launch. So no pictures payload :-(.

However on a slightly more positive note Neil managed to video the balloon from launch to burst which is a first for the UK High Altitude Balloon group.

  1. Sorry to hear about that – have been waiting patiently watching your site for the next launch pictures. It seemed like such a good opportunity with no ‘planes to get in the way! Pictures of the ash cloud would have been soooo coool !
    Maybe the volcano will oblige again sometime
    Good luck!

  2. Thats a shame, when do you plan to launch another?.
