Speaker: Johanna Nagy, University of Toronto Ballooning is one of the oldest forms of flight technology, but it remains an important platform for modern scientific experiments. Putting telescopes on balloons and flying them through the upper atmosphere provides a low-cost way to access a space-like environment. In this talk I will give an introduction to scientific ballooning including why we fly balloons, how balloon telescopes are built, and what it's like to work at NASA's scientific ballooning facility in Antarctica.
