Blog

Perlan’s blog collects the thoughts and experiences of team members from the multiple disciplines needed to build and prepare the aircraft, plan the flight, and carry out the mission. Here, you’ll find insights from the designers, craftspeople, pilots, meteorologists, and support personnel who will make Perlan’s record ascents a reality. Perlan’s blog will be an opportunity to delve into the challenges and triumphs that travel with the giant sailplane.

Perlan 2 will carry CubeSats built by students

The Perlan Project and Teachers in Space will be training high school teachers this summer to build CubeSats with experiments that can be carried to the edge of space.  Students will build the science packages this next year.  They will be carried on Airbus Perlan Mission 2 flights to the edge of space in the summer of 2016.  The CubeSat training will happen in August of 2015 in Palmdale, California.  The CubeSat containers shown here were made by Perlan team member Morgan Sandercock on a 3D printer.
