Near space balloons


Recommended Posts

Afternoon all,

I'm not really sure if this should be in the astrophotography section or not, so I thought I'd post here. After reading about this sort of thing a lot and seeing videos like this

I'm really up fr having a go myself with my Physics pupils and astronomy club at school.

I was wonders if anyone had ever had a go or had any experiences with this sort of thing.

Cheers, Rich

is much better made and more informative though. Cost £350 apparently - and I guess that's assuming you get your costly expensive equipment back at the end.

I was wondering how on earth they managed to find the camera box afterwards. Looked like they had some kind of tracking device I think.

Cheers all, this is definitely something I'm going to do. From a quick internet trawl theres plenty of advice to be had. My main problem is that our school is on the approach for Exeter airport! It could be a good excuse for a trip up on to Dartmoor with a chance of a star camp too!
