The physics club at my school is sending a balloon to space (near-space technically, but it's close enough). They needed a counterweight for the payload to keep it balanced, so I offered up my HP Prime, which is the right weight. To fit the theme of Cats, I will have a Nyan Cat animation written in HPPPL on the screen. I'm afraid that I won't actually have pictures of the calculator in space because the cameras aren't pointing at the counterweight, but I will post pictures and video of it leaving the ground and retrieving the balloon (hopefully).
