A pair of young Seattle sisters who sent a balloon to the edge of space are be received at the White House
Last September, Rebecca, 10, and Kimberly, 8, went out to Moses Lake with their parents to launch a spacecraft they designed and built.
Both girls say they took on the project because they love science, in part because of a really great science teacher they have at Seattle Country Day School. But their father, licenced Amateur Radio Operator Winston Yeung KI7CSK, was another motivating force.
The sisters hoped to launch the APRS equipped spacecraft again during their spring break, but the voyage has been postponed until after their trip to D.C.
