  1. I am just crazy proud of the three of you and this amazing balloon launching project!! I have to admit when you first began I was a little skeptical but clearly I was wrong since the pictures you got back speak louder than words of just how awesome this is. Great job JHAB (Joshua’s High Altitude Balloon)
