47Re: [GPSL] July 4th weekend
- Jun 1, 2002The launch will be at the Johnson Near Space Center, which is
about 10 miles south of Manhattan. The main feature of the JNSC
is a large storage building where we can fill 4-6 balloons inside
out of the wind.
Take a look at the pictures linked from this site - there are
several taken at the launch site.
