Unaccompanied Minor, Chris Hipkins, abroad – SMOG

Chris Hipkins, fresh from asking 259 questions about Simon Lusk, is?on a junket paid for by the US State Department demonstrating his uselessness.

For starters it’s spelled: “US Capitol“. And secondly, the Space Shuttle Challenger , which Hipkins claims to see and have photographed, disintegrated on launch in 1986 tragically killing seven crew members.

Nice one Chris…learning well from trevor on spectacular SMOGs. Bummer about all those questions too…quite a week for Trev and Tiny Trev.

Mental Health Break

The launch took place from central Germany and reached a max altitude of 35000m. A 1600g meteo balloon filled with helium was used alongside a GoPro Hero, Spot GPS and of course Lego Space Shuttle model 3367.

The launch took place on the 31st of December 2011, the equipment was recovered via GPS tracking 240 km S-E from a remote area.

I wish to thank Steve Sammartino for the opportunity to do this project and the german airtraffic control for the understanding.
