Project Themes:
- Quelab logo flight - capture a pic of the Quelab logo with the curvature of the Earth in the background
- Space Green Chilis - launch seeds of the New Mexican (Hatch?) Green chilis into space... makes it a truely New Mexican project. May get sponsorships from local companies. QUESTION: What to do with the seeds afterwards? (Grow them, sell them, study them?)
- Bulk paper airplane launch, from altitude
- In-flight video
- Launch a Team photo
