Every year the HASP program offers the opportunity for students to design, build and flight payload for stratospheric balloon flight. After a successful mission at the end of summer 2013, IIT AIAA chapter is submitting a new application for the 2014 mission. Our proposal include two main experiments, an engineering one involving a solar powered autonomous energy system and a biology one studying the reaction of extremophile microorganisms to the hostile stratospheric environment. Learning from last year mission, we chose to design a stronger and more practical structure. With the implementation of this new structural design and power system, our hope is to get closer to a CubeSat mission, our long term goal.
