With collaboration of National Autonomous University of Mexico & Aztralabs, Mexico and Valles Marineris International with logistics support from Mexican Air Force, KSF Space will support the launching of space balloon for R&D purpose.
Research focusing on stratospheric studies on Ozone Layer and beyond to conduct scientific experiments to estimate seriousness of Global Warming and Climate Change
The stratospheric capsule that is able to travel to the stratosphere (located between 15 and 40 km in Altitude). The capsule is currently developed with two variant one is pressurized for living venture and unpressurised version for the non-living experiments. It is unique as a platform for high altitude space studies and scientific research. It is based on its ability to be able to carry out flights of stable form (with low G’s) and for a prolonged time in atmosphere compared with other vehicles like investigation aircraft or sounding rockets that can only reach by Short periods of time, or a certain height.
This mission is part of KSF Space’s EOSS initiative, some of these sensors will be tested in Zero G to be use in EOSS satellite mission. The Stratos Satellite Capsule Scientific experiment includes: Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Magnetometer, pressure, humidity, UV spectrum analyzer, thermopile sensor, Camera and Video Recording, GPS, Altitude sensor, Radiation sensor, Gas Sensor, CO2 and Methane.
Dr Kayyali Mohamed, Chairman of KSF Space mentioned; “We are inviting enthusiasts, schools and universities to join our next mission, we can schedule two or three launch per year for academic and research, the launch scheduled next Thursday 22 February 2018.”
