OTMS Radio and Technology Club

The 2013/14 year has started and the club is about to begin all new activities.

 

OTMS now is a TSA VEX Robotics Team participant.  OTMS TSA will have a VEX robotics team that will participate in a few tournaments and the state championships for TSA.  If we qualify we will go on to nationals in Washington DC in June 2014.

Meetings will be on Wednesdays from 3:15 till 4:45.  The only exception is when I cannot make it.  In that case I will most likely move the meeting to Wednesday for that week or cancel it.

 
 
 
Near peak altitude os 97,000 feet  

 The above photo is of the earth at approximately 95,000 feet!

 
Screaming back to earth!

The above image is a shot where the balloon had popped and was screaming back to earth at 182 mph vertical speed!

The balloon and payload were both coming back down so fast due to the lack of air.  The parachute did not catch until it got back down to around 35,000 feet.

Meetings will be on Wednesdays from 3:15 till 4:45.  The only exception is when I cannot make it.  In that case I will most likely move the meeting to Wednesday for that week or cancel it.
