Physics Students at Austin Peay send high altitude balloon into Stratosphere

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – On a recent Tuesday afternoon, a farmer in rural Scottsville, KY, spotted a strange, shimmering object in one of his fields. He wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. It appeared to be nothing more than a Styrofoam beer cooler, wrapped in aluminum foil, with a parachute attached to it.

“What in the world is this?” he reportedly said. Another man with him said it looked like a weather balloon, so the farmer picked up the unusual box and took it back to his garage. The next morning, as he drove down a nearby highway, he happened upon a group of Austin Peay State University students wading through the weeds and tall grass along the side of the road.
