Take part in the museum's first attempt to live stream multiple HAM radio balloon launches from across the nation. Families can follow along as the balloons are launched into the air and travel across the globe. The balloons will be tracked by HAM radio and their locations will be updated online!
Once the balloons launch around 1 pm ET, you will be able to track them at aprsdirect.com using the balloon callsigns below. And follow along on social using #BalloonLaunchLive. Or view all of our balloons here.
