On May 7th, 2011 at 09:16 some retired Navy buddies and I launched a weather balloon that carried a small cooler. The cooler contained 3 digital cameras in it as well as tracking devices. The balloon was released and flew for 1 hour and 55 minutes to an estimated altitude of 103,097'. It landed gently about 40 feet up in a tree.
This was our first attempt at something like this. We learned a lot from this flight. If we do it again (when we do it again), we will use better cameras and more updated tracking devices. I will update this video with more pictures and video soon.
