Re: July 4th weekend

The launch will be at the Johnson Near Space Center, which is
about 10 miles south of Manhattan. The main feature of the JNSC
is a large storage building where we can fill 4-6 balloons inside
out of the wind.

Take a look at the pictures linked from this site - there are
several taken at the launch site.

Thanks for the info..

The web site told me what I needed.. It is at K-State.. My
father went
there.. My grandparents live in Clay Center.. I am going to
fly to KC,
get a car, and go visit my grandparents for the 4th, then go to
for the conf and launch.. Since it is close enough, I will stay
with my
grandparents and save on the hotel bill. I know the area much
better than
you would expect for someone from New Jersey....

Also, what is JNSC and where exactly is the launch from???

Hi Keith,

The symposium is scheduled for Friday, July 5th starting at
and lasting most of the day. The launch will be Saturday the
with a rain date of Sunday the 7th.

I believe both Manhattan and Topeka have limited air service,
it's probably expensive. It's probably more cost-effective
travel to Kansas City (MCI) and drive a rental car the 120
(2 hrs) from the airport to Manhattan.

Your return date depends on how sure you want to be of seeing
launches. If you go back Sunday afternoon, you could chase
us on Saturday if we get off the ground, or if it ends up
on Sunday you'd at least see the launch.
