      The 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.
