Dr. Roya Bahreini released a giant balloon into the sky for her Atmospheric Chemistry course today and we all joined on the quad to watch. The balloon is attached to a box containing a GPS and sensors recording temperature and humidity at high temporal resolution. Here's our group enjoying the launch when we all noticed the bird, no-- it's a plane, no-- it was Superwoman flying next to the balloon.
