Ελληνικά: Στην εικόνα: Το όρος Όλυμπος, όπως φαίνεται από την κάψουλα SlaRos, κατά την πτήση της στη στρατόσφαιρα σε υψόμετρο 30000 μέτρων.Το SlaRos είναι το πρώτο ερασιτεχνικό υποτροχιακό εγχείρημα στην Ελλάδα. Είναι ένα πολύπλευρο χόμπι που μου δίνει την ευκαιρία να εξερευνώ τον ουρανό της Γης, χωρίς να απαιτείται τεράστιος προϋπολογισμός ή υποστήριξη από κρατικές υπηρεσίες. Συνδυάζει τη φυσική, τις ακραίες συνθήκες, στοιχεία ηλεκτρονικής και μηχανικής τηλεπικοινωνιών, τον προγραμματισμό, τις κατασκευές, τη φωτογραφία, την έντονη περιπέτεια, πολλούς κινδύνους, ενώ απαιτεί τη συχνή επίλυση προβλημάτων και τη δαπάνη χρημάτων. Το εγχείρημα τιμήθηκε δύο φορές από το Earth Science της NASA και για την πραγματοποίηση του δαπανήθηκαν πάνω από 5 χιλιάδες ευρώ ενώ χρειάστηκαν 4 χρόνια για την εγχώρια ανάπτυξη των συστημάτων. Η πτήση στρατοσφαιρικών μπαλονιών γίνεται από τις γνωστές κρατικές διαστημικές υπηρεσίες από το 1950!

English: In this picture: The Olympus mountain as seen by the capsule, during it’s flight in the stratosphere at an altitude of 30000 meters.SlaRos, is the first amateur suborbital project in Greece. Is a multitasking hobby which allows me to explore earth’s sky without the need of enormous budgets and national agencies. It involves physics, extreme conditions, electronics & telecommunications engineering, software development, constructions, photography, high adventure, a lot of risks, problem solving and money spending. The project was honored twice by the NASA’s Earth Science and took over 5000 euros and four years for the domestic development of the systems. Stratospheric balloon flights are done by the space agencies from 1950!

About kathyfoshay

I'm all alone with the real end of the world and always looking for assistance and no one's ever contacted me from the hundreds of letters I'd sent while at the big homeless shelter, 2nd and D Streets, NW, as though anyone that tries to contact me gets disappeared, my life used as a LURE-gimmick that goes to how that Armageddon prophecy in that book of Revelation has been being snuck-through, and this is sort of the bottom of the barrel of ideas for trying to find assistance, thinking I could get all my various writings on this in one place that letter-recipients could then look up if they're interested. That means I'd have to see if I can send my emails to here, how to do that. Wordpress said there is a way but it entails that spam would also get the email address. My time for now it up I guess. Working in this sitting position isn't healthy for me but I've always got to be doing something toward trying to get hold of someone to help me. It's like I'm a microcosm of the Earth or the human race and if someone could help me out of this torture then that'd be a start on trying to get the whole Earth out of this. 5/1/17, still all this, etc., same situation. (7/14/18 now....) Now it's 2019.
