Join us as we talk to NASA scientists about balloon research in the stratosphere over Antarctica. This season, three giant helium balloons will launch near McMurdo Station and circulate in circumpolar air currents above Antarctica, collecting data about cosmic rays, very high energy particles that zip through the galaxy at nearly the speed of light. If conditions permit, we’ll be talking with the balloon scientists from their ice facility at Williams Field, where the giant balloons are inflated and launched and their flights are tracked.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
