I have 3 separate HAB projects named BUZZ, CLOUD and PIE. BUZZ is for lightweight payloads to achieve maximum altitude or (later) long duration flights. CLOUD is for more normal-sized photographic payloads. PIE is for flights with the Raspberry Pi as a tracker, and include SSDV (live images).
BUZZ is of course named after Buzz Lightyear who in turn was named after the astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the first man to have a pee (inside his spacesuit) on the moon.
CLOUD is named after my father-in-law Bryan Cloud who sadly is no longer with us, but was keen on both photography and space and would have absolutely loved to get involved in a project like this. Many CLOUD payloads carry a photograph of Bryan.
