Hey guys,

This is my club at my old school.  Ignore the weird background music, I'll
have to knock my friend on the head for that...anyway, this is how a launch
is done!

Presenting the UAHuntsville Space Hardware Club:

Skip to 8:40 for launch.

They launch from the National Space Science Technology Center which is
directly across from the university, right in the middle of Huntsville.  A
thought, we could find a farmer with a large shed (the big one that you
store all your tractors in with the giant door), or a facility with a bay
door, and we can fill the balloon there there away from wind and then
launch.  We don't have to travel to the middle of absolute no-where to
launch and find out the conditions are poor, or that the balloon was tainted
with too much dust and popped.
