High school freshman Mike Alex Hoppe feels compelled to fly a pie on a high altitude balloon. His π1 project is apparently inspired by the otherworldly taste of a great pie and also by this project: FPV to Space and back – RC Explorer.
I don’t know! Really, I’ve just always had this thing for pie: Pumpkin, Apple, Chocolate. I love them all. 😛 When I was designing this project I thought to myself, “How can I make my project different from all the other weather balloon projects?” Then it hit me, “PIE! No one has sent pie into space before!”
