The World of Scientific Ballooning

February 8

Human flight began with the balloon and today it is the last bastion of guerrilla science. Scientific ballooning provides a well-tested, reliable, low-cost, moderate risk platform that helps prepare the next generation of scientists, engineers, and instruments. This talk will take a look at how our oldest flight technology actually paves the way for the future.
