JP Aerospace Balloon



This is a really nice, but short video from JP aerospace. The apogee is reported at 107,000 feet. The balloon bursts here (most say that UV light exposure is what causes this, the rubber material degrades and becomes brittle in the cold rarefied air in near space, as cold as -90 below), and begins to fall.

Wow that was spectacular! It looks even worse than the last Air Canada flight I took!

Hi!
I just saw you left a comment on my blog, and I came to check yours out... it's quite strange that you left a comment there since my blog is fully written in Portuguese ... do you actually understand Portuguese?
I'm just curious ...
