The flight is scheduled for October 2016, in the early evening of UT, on a day with appropriate meteorological conditions, including the southern wind (160 – 200o direction).
The balloons will also become the carriers of airborne postal service, and the letters transported in this way will be sent to the most active viewers, who have helped with the project development.
During the flight, we intend not only to capture the artistic landscape of Warsaw, but also to explore the city atmosphere more scientifically.
The balloons will carry two special devices designed by Polish Academy of Sciences for space missions. The research crew is going to use the PACKMOON equipment, originally devised for the Phobos Sample Return mission to Mars's moon, which can take samples in zero gravity conditions.
Another important device that is going to take part in the flight is the first Polish satellite PW-SAT, which will emit a special space-crossing signal of the project, available to our radio followers from all over the world.
During the flight, a group of musicians of the excellent Sinfonia Varsovia orchestra will play a classical piece on top of the highest skyscraper. The concert is going to be recorded and transmitted around the globe, and hence the music will rise to the sky together with the balloons.
One of the best Polish radio station operating in Warsaw, Radio dla Ciebie, is eager to broadcast a special feature devoted to the project. As the exact date of the flight will remain unknown until the last moment, the station is prepared to change their programme schedule to air the mission special live and discuss it with their listeners.
