Channel 7 Covers Scientific Balloon Launch

Channel 7 (WVII) joined a number of other area news organizations in covering the launch Sept. 27 of a high-altitude scientific balloon as part of the hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) program at Bangor High School through UMaine. Professor of electrical and computer engineering Rick Eason was interviewed for the report. Students loaded the balloon with a GPS tracking system and sensors to record environmental conditions, in addition to a camera. The balloon parachuted back to Earth after reaching an altitude of about 100,000 feet.
