In other news, the pictures from the balloon launch are up since the teachers made it back to civilization where we have things like internet. Really, if you've not experienced eastern Colorado, it's kind of like outer Mongolia out there.
Here's a pic taken shortly after liftoff. Look, my house!
This one got a good shot of the burn scar from last summer's fire.
This one's a pretty cool shot with the moon.
And here's one from the descent into
outer Mongolia eastern Colorado.
There were over 700 photos. The balloon was in the air for about 2 hours total and reached an altitude of about 100,000 ft. before bursting.
I was trying to think of any similar projects from when I was in high school and could think of nothing. In college, my group did a senior project testing beer can strength by blowing a bunch up. Good times.
But rather cheesy in comparison.
