A weather balloon used on a daily basis to probe the atmosphere by institutions such as the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management. It also plays the role of a carrier in stratospheric missions organized by a growing group of fans of amateur exploration of the atmosphere.
Such a balloon reaches heights often exceeding 30,000 meters. It depends only on our imagination and the needs of the experiment what we will carry as a load in such a mission.
More and more research groups from universities and students of primary and secondary schools decide to implement their own stratospheric missions. This is, in our opinion, the cheapest form of experimenting.
It is also an opportunity to be where few people can go and touch what few people can touch.
At an altitude of over 30 kilometers, there are only military pilots and astronauts.
The meteorological balloon is an excellent, and quite economical medium for our experiments.
