Press release from GSBC
We’re only a few weeks away from announcing GSBC 2016 and opening registration – before we do, we wanted to ask all of you guys what you’d like to see for GSBC 2016! New tutorials, changes to the forum or website, more frequency teams of the week or month, different prizes or prize categories, a central theme for everyone to work together on – please share anything that comes to mind!
Balloon News will be lobbying for a later launch date in the UK. Easter weather is too variable while June weather, only 2 months after, often gives fantastic weather for HAB in the UK. It also fits in well with local school term times. We are also going to lobby for more crowd based science. We would like to see atmospheric scientists take advantage of many enthusiasts launching HAB and collect data simultaneously round the world. How useful would that be!
