Due to the progress made in SunbYte 1, SunbYte 2 was born. SunbYte 2 was flown on September 4th 2018 under the High Altitude Student Payload (HASP) programme run by NASA. Data analysis is in progress.
The High Altitude Student Payload is a programme run by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The High Altitude Student Platform is designed to carry up to twelve student payloads to an altitude of about 36 kilometres with flight durations of 15 to 20 hours using a small volume, zero pressure balloon. The payloads carried by HASP are designed and built by students and are used to flight-test compact satellites or prototypes and to fly other small experiments.
