At StratoStar, we are in awe of some of the amazing things science and technology discovers and innovates. Some really cool things are happening right now, and we can’t help ourselves: we’re just too interested. The latest thing that has really caught our attention is the relatively new 3D printer. This is exactly what it sounds like: a printer that uses plastic to turn blueprints into actual three-dimensional objects. When electronic paper printing became too normal for us, science and technology upped the game and developed ways to print actual objects.

In our last post, we talked about the preparation work behind a special balloon launch conducted by students and Dr. James Flaten at a Minnesota Twins game, kicking off the Minnesota Aerospace and Aviation Week and honoring Bob Cabana, Director of Kennedy Space Center.

It’s no secret that we love high-altitude balloons and the science that can be explored with them. So when we see places around the country exposing high altitude balloon technology to large crowds at really popular events, we get pretty excited about it. One of StratoStar’s customers was asked to conduct a mission from a Minnesota Twins Game!

Benjamin Franklin is widely known for his awesome knowledge of the STEM fields. As an author, scientist, political theorist, musician, it is really no surprise that he would also be an inventor. He hold firm to his belief that men should work to improve and advance life for everyone.

The Founding Fathers will always be known most for their political accomplishments, these men invented more than America. Thomas Jefferson utilized skills in STEM to invent many of the items we use on a daily basis.

Washington, Jefferson, Franklin. All of these men are known as some of greatest contributors towards the birth of the United States of America. But, these men are more the just founding fathers; they are also innovators in other fields aside from politics and government.

The year was 1960, and Col. Joseph Kittinger sprang forth from his capsule at 102,800 feet, creating a record distance freefall. Joe fell through earth's atmosphere at incredible speeds during a time when people had no idea whether or not a person could survive a fall like that. He successfully touched back to the ground, and the record would never be revisited again.

StratoStar was invited to help Students and Teachers honor Astronaut Gus Grissiom by launching a Scientific High-Altitude Balloon to the edge of space at the kick off of the Indiana Space Complex. We will be sharing more about this event and the adventure later this week. For now review the informaiton below and checkout more pictures on our Facebook page. Stay tuned for more information.

Tardigrades, otherwise known as water bears or moss piglets, have long been a part of all kinds of experiments at the edge of space and beyond. Why? Because time and time again, they are sent unprotected to the vacuum of space and return perfectly healthy! On Earth, water bears are generally looked upon as tiny cockroaches, because they can withstand a lot. Originally water bears lived as creatures of the water, but over time they became capable of living in any sort of Earthly environment.

loved a lot of things about being a student. Getting to meet new teachers and learn from them was always great, and I loved it when I was put into a class with one of my friends. The best part of school, however, was always lunchtime. It seems that no matter what was going on throughout the day - a big exam, maybe, or a report that was due - the cafeteria was always a good time.
