The launch took place at the Timmins Stratospheric Balloon base, a collaborative effort by the Canadian Space Agency and Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales of France, along with support from the Corporation of the City of Timmins, and a partnership with the non-profit educational outreach group, Science Timmins.
