NSL-6 photos came out great!   We only reached about 60 kft, but we got some great space photos and several of other aircraft, which is a first for us.  Preliminary photos available on Flickr (and are shown below).  Full pictures from the on-board camera can be found here. They'll be added to the Maker Faire NC pool from there. 


NSL-6 Balloon launched at 2:51pm, Saturday, June 18, 2011 from MakerFaire at the NC State Fairgrounds.  With a 5 hour flight time, it reached a height of 60,827 ft and traveled 80 miles. Recovered at 7:40pm near Ayden, NC.  (APRS Tracking data was here, but it is likely out of date at this point.)
