Presented by Arizona Near Space Research, from lift off through touch down, you'll learn what is required to prepare, launch and recover a system that will fly 20 miles above of the surface of the earth. The goal of ANSR is to promote science and education through high altitude balloons and amateur radio. Learn how we utilize a latex weather balloon inflated with Helium to ascend to over 100,000'. Fly standard payloads so groups can focus on the scientific aspects of a flight. Track the payloads during flight, provide maps through the Internet and predict their landing location in real-time. Learn about the Earth's atmosphere and how the payloads handle the effects of extremes in temperature, pressure and winds. Learn how your educational youth group, high school or college class can participate in our next flight.
