EAGLE TWO IS THE NEWEST PROJECT.
MEMBERS OF THE ELDORADO GAME ASSOCIATION...ARE FUNDING THE PROGRAM FOR A NEW SPACE PROBE TO MEASURE WEATHER PATTERNS.
STUDENTS SAY IT WILL BE DESIGNED TO FLY HIGHER -- AND STAY IN THE ATMOSPHERE LONGER THAN THE ORIGINAL "EAGLE"...WHICH LAUNCHED EXACTLY A MONTH AGO.
"... in our second mission we will have an updated tracking system and flight controller and our goal is to get higher and reach altitudes of 135,000 feet we will stay in space longer ascend faster and we will have live video streaming back to earth" - Michael Bilbrey, EHS Student
THEY'RE PLANNING ON A LAUNCH FOR "EAGLE TWO"...BY THE END OF THE SEMESTER.
