Stratofox Aerospace Tracking Team - Ian Kluft

Stratofox Aerospace Tracking Team - Ian Kluft - Stratofox Participation in the California Near Space Project's CNSP-18 Transcontinental/Transatlantic Stratospheric Balloon

The goal of Stratofox Aerospace: You launch it; We bring it back.

They started with a dozen founding members in 2002.  They now have 65 members.  They have done several searches for rockets at Nevada's Block Rock Desert.

Ian told us about a number of success stories.  One of the fun ones was a balloon which went all the way to the Mediterranean sea.  They had only been trying for Colorado.  This last year they tried again and got to Morocco.  Both balloons went over six thousand miles.

Stratofox would like more members.  They are a non-profit organization.  Donations are tax deductible.
