In 2014, a group of engineering students had an idea to send a high altitude balloon into the sky and transmit real-time information to the internet.

Starting with that idea, the #cougballoon team spent countless hours researching and testing....

On April 19th 2015, the #cougballoon soared 21.4 miles into the stratosphere and was successfully recovered in Scio, Oregon.

On April 17th 2016, the 2nd annual launch of the #cougballoon found the payload traveling from Salem, OR to Canby, OR.

Check out our video from the 2015 launch.

On April 23rd 2017, the #cougballoon will launch again.
