Newark Catholic Atmospheric Exploration Project

A group of students from the Physics for Robotics Engineering class launched a High Altitude Balloon as part of their end-of-year project. The balloon launched from Marysville at Union County Airport in April.

The flight lasted approximately 3 hours, raising to over 111,000 ft. At that height, the temperature was around -85°F (-65°C)!

The total distance traveled by the balloon was 75.5 mi.
