Designed to monitor atmospheric conditions such as temperature, pressure, and humidity, it also provides a live video feed of what is happening in the sky to those down on earth. With one eye on safety, the balloon is tethered to a base station, which constantly monitors windspeed so should it reach dangerous limits it can automatically bring the balloon safely down to lower altitudes. The base station also provides a live graph of the data that is being captured, along with video, so you’re in the heart of the action and science.
