These cosmic kids will be the kids from both Special Olympics Ontario and the AstroNut kids. When their DNA returns from space their individual DNA swabs of each special child will be attached to a motivational award certificate which will be presented to each child so that on those difficult and challenging days, that child can find the strength to say "I can do this! If I can make it into space, then no challenge is too difficult!"
The funds we raise will be used for the technical resources required to launch, track and recover the high altitude helium weather balloon. The items of highest expense are the commercial latex high altitude weather balloon, the parachute, the custom built payload box, the 3 GoPro camera's, 2 GPS trackers, the helium and then the colour printing of the award certificates and the most expensive is the aviation flight insurance to cover the event.
Please donate so we can make this inspirational space-science adventure happen for all these amazing cosmic kids!
