GRIPS Balloon Team at McMurdo Station Antartica


#GRIPSballoon during our successful compatibility test!! We integrated nicely with NASA’s CSBF telemetry systems 🙂

The GRIPS Balloon Project, pictured above has been shipped down to McMurdo Station Antartica. The GRIPS balloon team has now been in McMurdo for a couple of weeks and is preparing the gondola with the various scientific instruments and detectors for launch.
You can follow their progress as they prepare for launch, at the started of December, via our twitter feed @GRIPSBalloon or at, where the tweets are being echoed.
Best wishes from all of us on the ice!
