The flight vehicle is the key to the HEARTSAT mission. It’s flight characteristics and design are the result of research this past summer at the University of New Hampshire, which I was involved in. This open-top design utilizes no parachute yet maintains a stable ascent and descent back to Earth. Experiment room is abundant, both inside insulated areas and exposed areas for a plethora of gas sensors, spectrometers, or almost anything imaginable.
