Mini CASSiE (a 5 inch version of me) who took my place on a flight to the edge of space on Friday 22nd March 2013 (because the payload was too small for me to take the trip myself) has not been seen since.
She was on board a spacecraft, along with 70 MARSBalloon experiments (that’s 70 student projects lost too!)
For Science and Space, we must find them!
This poster was made on Friday, but we now think that the landing site could be further north or further East.
New data (from the transmitter of the sister ship, that was recovered) suggests that CASSiE and the experiments may be in the Leamington Spa area – Long Itchington, perhaps.
If you are in that area, please help look for MiniMe! In trees, on roofs, fields etc – espeicailly where there is poor mobile signal, as we think this could be the reason the transmitter failed after balloon burst.
Please help find MiniMe! Join our efforts on facebook:
