To launch Astropod, you will need three cylinders of helium gas. This will provide the lift force required to take your Astropod to the edge of space.

You can order gas right here on our site.

The Astropod kit has been specially designed to work with the amount of gas in three cylinders. You must use all of the gas for your flight.

If you fail to completely empty each cylinder into the balloon, or if you add more weight to the Astropod, your Astropod is at risk of reaching neutral buoyancy before bursting and floating for thousands of miles.
