Mission

High altitude weather balloons are widely used to carry a number of instruments to the upper atmosphere to be returned upon explosion when pressures inside the balloon exceed atmospheric pressures.

Our payload, containing cameras, GPS trackers, and additional instruments, is connected to the balloon by string and was reclaimed upon return to Earth’s surface using a parachute and on-board tracking.
