Target Reach

With an incredibly generous pledge from Frank Clark, we have now managed to surpass our target - which is absolutely fantastic! Thank you everyone for your support, particularly those that made their generous contributions to the project. We will definitely be able to have two main flights with the two of the largest weather balloons available, which should provided some brilliant footage and data - as well as lots of experience for Astroduck!

We have now reached the minimum requirement for the project to go ahead, which is absolutely fantastic! So thank you to everyone for their pledges and for spreading the word. Without you, this project wouldn't even be close to happening.

The next tier for us to aim for is £640, which will enable us to get a larger balloon and therefore have an even longer flight where Astroduck will travel both higher and further! So to help achieve this target, please share the project on Facebook and Twitter, and make sure you follow @YorkAstroDuck on Twitter for frequent updates!


And again, thank you everyone for your help because now this project will definitely be happening.
