A trip into the stratosphere is exactly the right project for enthusiasts and adventurers! Who can really claim that they have already launched a camera attached to a weather balloon up to altitude of almost 40 kilometers?! It’s not just the sensational pictures but also the work on the project that will not be forgotten so quickly! An experience with a guarantee for adventure! That’s a promise!
