So who or what is the MARTG? It’s not a club, it’s a select group of amateurs with common interests. It doesn’t have a president or a constitution. Its members meet each week to decide what the group will do next. They bring along their own projects to demonstrate new technologies and inspire new ideas. Some bring food and drinks. Everyone has a story or a joke to tell. Their backgrounds and collective skills are impressive: Some can design, some can build, some can code, some can organize. There’s the guy who provides the meeting room, workshop, equipment, tools and utilities for free. The guy who can fix anything and rework SMDs. One who does web design, photography and videos. Another who knew someone who donated the helium. The list goes on. High altitude ballooning and the GSBC is just one example of this multifaceted group’s activities. Reaching 20km altitude is pretty impressive, but the group wants to go higher still and to be able to talk to the balloon who knows why exactly? And what after that? Well, the MARTG is already working on its own CubeSat™: It’s a complete micro satellite launch package, donated by a member of the team, with the aim of putting the group and amateur radio into a low earth orbit! It seems like the sky is no longer the limit for the MARTG.

«On the Misconceptions about Einstein Roger J Anderton R.J.Anderton@btinternet.com There are misconceptions about Einstein as Robert Resnick gives his account of some of the misconceptions in the Journal of Chemical Education. It highlights that there was not agreement in Academia regarding Einstein’s relativity; it thus seems odd that a theory (theories) which were not agreed as to what was really meant was fostered upon us in the physics education system. It is my contention that something...»
