Up, up and away with JP Aerospace (Updated)

JP Aerospace sends 6 balloons and 1700 student PongSats to edge of space, though the article doesn’t say exactly how high they went.

Here’s the Pongsat page.

Update:
I thank John Powell, founder of JP Aerospace, who comments:

One went to 106,300 feet. Four were just over 100,000 feet and one went low at 83,0000 feet.

Pretty impressive!
