The General Membership Meeting will be held on, Wednesday, March 14th in Room 2424 at the University of Michigan’s Space Research Building.

This month’s presentation topic is Michigan Balloon Recovery & Satellite Testbed (MBuRST).

MBuRST is a design team at the University of Michigan focused on flying scientific and satellite payloads on high-altitude weather balloons. These balloons reach altitudes upwards of 100,000 ft and temperatures as low as -60 degrees Celcius. This near-space environment allows MBuRST to be a great testing platform for student-built space systems.”
