Did you, DO you...
...ever dream of space?
Maybe the day hasn't arrived for us to take a vacation on the Moon, but we've reached a point where a small group of space-loving Makers can actually send a probe from their backyards right up to the edge of space. That's exactly what NC NearSpace does... and they plan to do it again at Maker Faire: NC this June 16th around 12:00 p.m.!
This picture was taken by the NC NearSpace high-altitude balloon launch that occurred at last year's Maker Faire: NC. Yep... that little probe went so high you can actually see where blue sky of Earth turns to the black of space. No million dollar backers. No government agencies. Just a small group of individuals taking their dreams and Making them real.
Want to be a part of the next launch? Come meet the team that tackles the challenge of reaching for the final frontier at Maker Faire: NC and witness the event first hand! Afterwards head over to their website to see pictures returned from the edge of space. Here's a chance to inspire the kids with just how much a few people with a dream can do -- and just maybe recapture that wonder of space for yourself as well.
