The full zoom session from pre-launch through recovery is now available.  It's 3 1/2 hours with long periods of silence, but there is more chatter on the audio as we home in on the chase.  For next time, I'm going to see if we can make it such that the on-site folks share their video and override the chase map, rather than just come onto the video call (with their video being a small box on the side).  I think that would help.  We'll see what we can do.  Enjoy:

The students have a media team preparing a full video montage of the experience.  I'll share that if/when it becomes available.

The zoom recording is about 9 hours long.  I fired it up before I left the house at 9am and turned it off when I returned around 6pm. I'll probably edit it down to at least trim it to the launch, flight + recovery.  There were about 10 people on the zoom during the chase.  To be honest, I haven't even had a moment to look at it.  It'll take me a bit.  I don't even know if I have enough disk space to download the entire recording to edit it and make a trimmed version for Youtube.  I'll work on it this week.

That said, the students from the Space Systems Design Studio have a media team that is assembling footage they gathered from the build, launch preps, flight and recovery into some kind of video.  Aside from testing the technical aspects of the payload, the flight was also intended to gather "marketing" type material.  I expect they'll be releasing that at some point in the coming weeks.  I'll share that as well.

More to follow, but for now, will the Cornell balloon team be releasing the recording of the Zoom event (it was recorded for GPSL members who aren't aware of that) on youtube soon?

I'm asking about all the Zoom recording where something was happening, not just a few minutes of spectacular highlights which have been already released.  I was not able to watch at the time this event took place because of doing other holiday activities.
