The Beginning

In this blog, I will describe everything I did to build and launch my first high altitude balloon. The inspiration to build one came after seeing pictures of the Earth with the blackness of space taken by previous balloon projects. The goal was simple. Get to 30km or above and take pictures and videos throughout the flight. And do so for an affordable price. The price is one of the reasons I tried to build as many components myself as possible.

For an illustration, this is an example of how such a high altitude balloon might look in the end.
