Time schedule

The first planned launch of the Czech amateur stratospheric probe Phoenix 1 will take place in July 2011. Until this time, the preparation will follow this time schedule:

  • October 2010: start of the project
  • October 2010 – June 2011: planning and calculations, fundraising
  • July 2011: purchase of materials and devices
  • August 2011: construction of the probe and testing
  • September 2011: release of Phoenix 1
  • October/November 2011: publication of documentary film about Project Phoenix

The entire project is intended to be long-term, so it can be expected that after the releasing of Phoenix 1, other advanced probes will be sent to the edge of space. Perhaps we will be able to release the probe also in the winter and just before sunrise.
