LASA-8 ready for launch on November 20th

The Lanark Space Agency is at it again. We are making another attempt at the world record for altitude in amateur radio high altitude ballooning. Our last attempt left us only a few hundred feet short of the record 128,379 ft 39130 m (almost 40 km straight up). This mission LASA Mk. VIII will commence Saturday the 20th of November at 9am EST. If you wish to follow the balloon and chase vehicles you can do so on the web at
