Oliver de Peyer, Melissa Grant and Paul Shepherd: The High-Altitude Bio-Prospecting Project (HAB)

The HAB team are currently developing a high altitude bioprospecting project to search for bacteria in the stratosphere. The team spent 12 days in the Nevada desert - to fly their device as many times as is possible - on balloons and rockets. They have teamed up with the Rocket Mavericks. They went to the Black Rock desert - home of the burning man festival. There was no phone coverage and it's very remote (austere as Ol says), so they took GPS and satellite phones and all kinds of wizardry - hopefully there was some good star gazing too.

The team are currently developing an exhibition/installation/performance and symposium around the project.
