Chris Murphy, the director for high altitude balloons for Teachers in Space, has just sent us some of the first images of the cubesat in low earth orbit. Check them out below!

Students have been working on the cubesat since October! We asked permission before going on any private property-we met a very nice family who let us wander through their land to find the cube!

I thing it was cool that you got to do that and i wonder what it was like to have been the cube

We think it's pretty cool too! We'll be positing video from the cube (hopefully!) later today, which should give you an idea about what it might have been like to be that high!

That was awesome! How long were you guys tracking the CubeSat?

The cubesat flew for about two and a half hours, so we were tracking it that whole time!

wow thats so cool, next time make it a field trip

That would definitely be cool!

That was so cool! How long did it take for the cubesat to reach the atmosphere? How far into the atmosphere did it go? How did you know you would have to go through mud and poop because it seems to me like you all had rain boots?

It went to 95,000 feet, which is well within the Stratosphere. We all decided to wear boots to be prepared for anything that happened, because we weren't sure where the cube would land!
