Balloons and Rockets for Atmospheric and Space Studies (BRASS)
The BRASS workshop was organised by Prof. Mike Kosch and held in Lancaster on 24 September to discuss future research opportunities using high altitude balloons and rockets for atmospheric and space studies. The event attracted 28 people from Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden, USA and UK. New controllable low-cost hybrid rocket motors as well as new projects and ideas for atmospheric and space research linking to climate change issues were presented. Some of the ideas, outcomes and presentations can be found at http://isrw.rocketrange.no/.
