Welcome TO Mission


Welcome To Mission




If you’ve always dreamed of launching your own mission to space, here is your opportunity to take command. With StratoStar’s new tracking software, you can see it all. Explore project-based learning examples and imagine how you could apply it to your curriculum.


StratoStar’s Mission Control allows you to


MAPS show you where your weather balloon goes.

Our maps will show you where your balloon is from launch to landing. You’ll need to keep a pulse on your balloon’s location so that you can easily go retrieve your payload. See the distance that your launch travels – you’ll even be able to access your map after your launch so you can review and analyze your weather balloon’s journey.

GRAPHS Track altitude, temperature, heading, and more.

Now that you know where your flight is going, track the altitude, temperature, humidity and more on our software’s graphs. During the course of your flight, you will be able to see live graphs of your weather balloon.  Also, these graphs will be saved on your mission page for later analysis.

DATA shows GPS, sensor, and system updates during flight.

Your launch will be tracked from start to finish, and you will be able to analyze the data throughout the course of the project. You’ll be able to track longitude, latitude, speed, altitude, heading, vertical rate, distance and more in real time as your weather balloon rises to the edge of outer space.

SOCIALIZE and see who is following the launch, and what they are saying about your mission.

With this new tracking software’s complete, integrated Twitter feed, you will be able to see photos and comments from Twitter about your mission. Each mission is assigned its own unique hashtag, and you can share updates from your mission with anyone who might be watching.
