HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON LAUNCH

Event Date: 
Thu, 04/27/2017 - 10:00am - 1:00pm
Location: 
DUVALL-ROSIER FIELD



Aviation Physics students at FSU are launching a high altitude balloon as one of their course activities.

The balloon will carr several payload instruments whichthe students assembled, to measure the pressure,

humidity, temperature and radiation levels as functions of altitude. Knowing the conditions at various altitudes gives

necessary information for pilots who fly regularly, engineers who design aircraft, chemists and biologists who are interested

in the effects of extreme environment on life and chemical processes. An experiment planned for a future launch is to measure

CO2 levels at different altitudes above different topographies, as well as seasonal variations. Currently such variations are measured

consistently only at low altitudes.
