Ascent 2 Balloon Project Update

We are now in the video editing and production phase of the project. I met with a couple of faculty from KCAI yesterday afternoon and started laying out the framework for the full dome video. Work on the video may also come from students in the Blue Valley KS school district CAPS program.

Initially we are thinking of a sort of documentary to start with that would highlight the community involvement – the students planning and designing the payload package. Then we would segue into a video that will take the audience on two flights, one to 96,000 feet and the other to 86,000 feet. Along the way they would have stunning views of the greater Kansas City MO and KS area and from the second flight views of the ballon flight accross the state to Illinois.

Stay tuned. I’ll post clips as we move along. Performances in May so stay tuned!
