Depends on where you can source desks from - ex-government office-ware auctions might be an idea.

Here's the adjustable desk I use at the moment, bought from IKEA: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/S19852113/ (£111)

A weather-balloon rig would be an easy place to start, although NI's issue is lack of land mass on which to.. um.. land is a wee bit of an issue - if the balloon drifts over the sea, recovery becomes a little more difficult.

 

Is there a rocketry club in Ireland?

A Wiki

Pretty obvious, we need a wiki, linked to the farset labs website. Somewhere we can detail organisation structure, plans for growth, projects, minutes of meetings, progress, technical stuff like the webcam access url and other server info and wifi passwords etc.

 

A wiki please.
