Banbury’s Space Studio students will be reaching for the unknown this Friday, May 11, as they launch a balloon into near space.

The event is part of European Astrotech’s research and development programme using high altitude balloons.

Students will launch the balloon at 11,30am and will use the extreme conditions the balloon will encounter for experiments to understand the effects of sub-zero temperatures and high levels of radiation.
