Re: Detecting Muons (And Not Morons) :)

I recieved two of these a couple months ago for a test. They worked well on my ground tests and I'm planning to launch them on my next balloon flight. 

I have two so I can run them in coincidence mode. Only when a muon passes through both detectors, will it register as a detection. That will limit the BalloonSat to only detecting muons originating overhead.

Hello all,

Here is an article I ran across today, I am thinking this would be a
great project for HS kids here in Granbury to fly in our April balloon
flight.

Might be a nice project for GPSL 2018 as well!
