Shopping for a young scientist? How about a ticket to the edge of space? We want to get young scientists involved in space exploration! Buy an edge of space gift certificate your student can send an experiment, photo, or keepsake item to the stratosphere, completely supported by an Earth to Sky Calculus launch and recovery team. Post-flight, experiments will be returned to the student along with video footage, GPS tracking, temperature, pressure, altimetry and radiation data. This is a great kickstarter for Springtime science fair projects.
Conditions: No mammals. Plants and non-pathogenic microbes are allowed. Generally speaking, experiments should weigh less than 300 grams and occupy a volume less than ~64 cubic inches. A Skype brainstorming session is included with each certificate. Dr. Tony Phillips and other members of the Earth to Sky team will chat with students to help them craft an experiment that will work in the harsh environment of the stratosphere.
