Holderness Radio Balloon Launch

Posted October 12, 2014 by Chris

"In order to collect the necessary data, the metrological balloon will be sent with a payload to an altitude of 80,000 feet. The payload weighs five pounds and contains sensors that measure temperature, altitude, UV radiation, and atmosphere pressure. It will carry two cameras to take aerial photos of the horizon from ‘near space,’ the region between the boundary of space and the earth’s atmosphere."
