Pretend that you are an engineer working at NASA.

You are part of a team tasked with developing a balloon design that will break the world's record for altitude in an unmanned high altitude balloon; this will be used by NASA for experiments in the future.


The balloon should have, at a minimum: Ultralightweight materials, provision for mounting/enclosing equipment, connection to the balloon, stabilization from swaying and rotation, but the specifications are fairly vague.

Another group of engineers has come up with a prototype design.


HAAMER Project:

Background:

Pretend your manager isn't a technical person, and doesn't have a particular solution in mind; she just wants it to work, so she can look good to the NASA higher management. She also doesn't have time to figure it out herself, or all the possible

issues, because she has 20 other projects she is already overseeing. While this manager doesn't know much about physics or engineering, she is good at managing projects, and that is why she is here. She's always been successful at making projects work. You, however, are new and unproven. This is a very common scenario!

Your job is to come up with a really good solution on your own; asking your manager to solve it for you will just annoy her, and make her think you don't know what you are doing. And you want to impress your boss with your creativity and work ethic. If your report and design are poor, she will not give you a raise, the project will not happen, and your report will go in the waste bin. If it is very clever, she may circulate your report to upper management, promote you to the next salary level, and make you a manager over the project. (This is a very common scenario in real life, folks!)

So, the final report you are to generate should be written with this manager in mind and for others that she will give it to.
