Kansas From 88,000 Feet: FHSU's High-Altitude Balloon Launch


Dr. Jack Maseberg and Dr. Paul Adams will present results from FHSU’s first High-Altitude Balloon Launch (December 16, 2011). The launch represented a joint venture of an undergraduate research project by a KAMS (Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science) student and a class project for the Introduction to Engineering Science class. Exciting video footage of Kansas from near-space will be revealed, as well as the altitude dependence of temperature and air pressure.
