Pitt Shadow Bandits

Did you know Pitt is playing a role in the Great American Eclipse? The Pitt Shadow Bandits are one of 60 other teams recruited to launch a research payload as part of NASA’s Eclipse Ballooning Project, which will project a live stream of all the balloon cameras. Stay tuned for more videos and news about the team on Twitter @PittTweet

Meet the team via Pitt’s Physics & Astronomy department!


The Pitt Shadow Bandits’ final test was on July 14 at the Allegheny Observatory. Read about the project, the testing, and the final event from Pitt News, Pittwire, and the Post-Gazette.
