BITS Update
Bears In The Sky is moving forward with building the next flight package.

The next flight, designated NS7 (our 7th flight to near space) is scheduled to fly this fall, which will also signal a move to include a lot more electronics that are built in house by Timpson Students.

Haden Ramsey and Connor Timmons teamed up to build an LED electronic robot that is an introductory kit to wiring and soldering electronics for beginners. The final result, and their second try, came up with a dazzling blinking robot that will be flown with hand sized computers to test the dynamic atmosphere of near space on electronics.

More sophisticated electronics will be built and implemented in NS8, one of which will be a Geiger Counter built, wired, and soldered by Timpson students, to measure the extremes of radio active particles that regularly collide with the earth.
