Project Black Sky


Black Sky is the nickname of a High Altitude Balloon mission. The project was designed by a 13 year old for his 7th grade science fair project. The intent of the project was to study the effects of low pressure on common objects in near space. The images above show the journey from launch to 85,011 feet and back.
