CONCORD - Area high school students along with mentors from UNH’s Project SMART launched 2 custom built high tech balloons 100,000 feet into the stratosphere Monday.
These balloons took off loaded with nine instruments which monitor radiation levels, velocity, temperature, and air pressure.
The balloon's rise and fall is part of simulated 4 week satellite experiment, from design through construction, to launch, flight and the data recovery.
The scientific aim of the experiment is to discover how Earth's atmosphere responds to solar activity with altitude.
