Tualatin Robotics Balloon Launch Update
Oct 13, 2012

Last night, the team lost contact with the balloon about 5000 meters off ground when the primary GPS began to malfunction.  The predicted landing was about 10 miles NE of Condon, Oregon off highway 206. http://goo.gl/maps/PDRdK

They recalculated the impact zone yesterday evening and kept searching with no luck. They decided to spend the night and are continuing the search today.  They are using a backup GPS to help find it today and have a good idea where it landed.  They’ve made friendships with local landowners and will be conducting a ground search today. The local media is picking up the story too.
