We're now over 14,000 flown from over 20 countries. I believe that's more education payloads than all the rest of the world's space programs combined.
In three weeks we are doing three flights with only 800 student experiments on board. This one has a lot of in house experiments being flown as well.

This September we are doing a big mission with 2000 PongSats. We're running another Kickstarter fundraising effort so we can still keep PongSat free for all users.

Please stop by the Kickstarter site and check it out.

Thanks!

JP

That's awesome John, glad to help you out with this 2,000 PongSat mission. I mentor some university rocket and balloon teams and require outreach projects for K-12 school kids. One was launching tiny paper airplanes students made up from a balloon but nothing tops the cool PongSats you send up.

I was wondering, what are some of your favorite ones?
