Pacific Star 2
In the Pacific Star 2 project... the balloon burst, the parachute deployed, and the payload floated down for 35 minutes!
This video is about the second trip of the author's home made high altitude weather balloon photography project called Pacific Star.
The balloon was launched at 5:37pm PST from Oxnard, CA and reached an altitude of 125000 ft. It was snapping photos and recording video along the way, but then...
The balloon burst! the parachute deployed! The payload floated down for 35 minutes and finally landed near an old olive orchard Northeast of Santa Paula.
