###2017 High Altitude Balloon

Current Progress (Dylan and James):

During the past few weeks we have been working on the programming section of the high altitude balloon. We have gotten the Raspberry Pi HAT to work and will now record temperature, humidity, altitude, acceleration, pressure, pitch, roll and yaw. We have also set a delay of 60 seconds between each reading so that we will have a consistent time frame to work with and will not be overloaded with data. Our main problem that we ran into with the HAT was that the residual heat from the Raspberry Pi was causing faulty temperature readings. We tried to remedy this by discovering a constant value to subtract from our temperature reading to get the actual temperature.
