What is the BACAR5 going to do this year?

We will approach at least 10 schools, of which one will be in the Freestate, one in Gauteng and six in Secunda area then suggestions for two more will be evaluated. The format of the school interaction will also adjusted with the learnings from last year.

This year we have to demonstrate our capability to flight test satellite payloads in the near space.

This year we will do at least one very lightweight floating balloon with the aim to fly over Australia, the balloon will depict the ZS6SRC logo, the BACAR logo and a Springbok rugby jersey :-)

Please send other ideas for evaluation to me.
