High Altitude Balloon Club to launch Saturday


After two and half months of diligent research and work by seventh and eighth grade students in the High Altitude Balloon Club (HAB) at Forestview Middle School, the finish line is near and they are ready to launch.

The group will gather at 9:30 a.m. Saturday in the seventh and eighth grade parking lot at Forestview to send up their payload in to the stratosphere, hoping to reach an altitude of 85,000-plus feet.
