This Week in Public Laboratory Plenty of action this week including a new balloon kit, flame spectroscopy, a prototype rasberry-pi based dual camera, and a community feedback survey.
New Balloon Kit 1.5 UPDATE “As of today, we've changed up the balloon kit parts to address concerns and improvements. Its a better kit with more stuff for the same price!” http://publiclaboratory.org/notes/mathew/10-19-2012/balloon-kit-15-changes
Classroom Flame Spectroscopy From Public Lab member Straylight: “A group of students and I put the PLOTS spectroscope to use observing the spectra from solutions of common metal salts that were excited in the flame of a bunsen burner.” http://publiclaboratory.org/notes/straylight/10-14-2012/classroom-flame-spectroscopy
