Western graduate students recovered a high altitude balloon that was launched into space one year ago

Afternoon Drive

It's been one year to the day when a group of Western students launched a balloon into space to study the Earth's stratosphere. The project was presumed dead when the group lost GPS contact with the balloon, but last week a farmer found it near the projected landing site. Host Chris dela Torre talks to Matthew Svensson and Alexis Pascual two of students involved in the project who are now analysing the data.
