What is a High Altitude or Space Balloon?

High-altitude balloons are manned or unmanned balloons, usually filled with helium or hydrogen, that are released into the stratosphere, generally attaining between 18 and 37 km. A high Balloon (HAB) is a big latex balloon that is capable of carrying a bunch of objects to near space. These balloons are filled with helium or hydrogen and expand as they ascend through Earth’s atmosphere. The objects that are attached to a HAB are often referred to as the payload train and each payload serves a particular purpose. These must include a parachute, radar reflector, and communication tracker.

Can a balloon go to space?

High-altitude balloon flights are becoming cheaper and more widely available, expanding research opportunities for scientists and hobbyists, as well as young people just learning how science works. Also, researchers suggest that the cost of taking a space tour in a space balloon is cheaper than using any other means. This has certainly shifted the focus on making space balloons real.

If you thinking to take a tour of space balloon, read at below links to know the possibilities:

What would happen to a Balloon in space?

Whether you are a veteran astronomer or a child looking up at the stars, outer space holds a fascination for everyone who gazes into the void. This intriguing vacuum also inspires people to wonder what happens out there. A balloon that goes up in space, gives out varied results, based on the amount of helium gas it has in it.

The balloon is not fully inflated before launch. A measured amount of helium is put into the balloon that will give it enough lift to get off the ground and ascend to the desired float altitude. As the balloon rises, the gas inside the balloon expands because the atmospheric pressure surrounding the balloon drops. The atmosphere is 100 to 200 times less dense at the float altitudes than on the ground. If the balloon is fully inflated on the ground, the gas will either need to be vented out (zero-pressure balloons) and wasted as it expands. In the case of super-pressure balloons (closed system), the excess gas would exert excessive pressure on the skin and ultimately can cause it to rupture. A balloon that is fully inflated on the ground will also have way too much lifting force.

I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: pm7234029@gmail.com Https://www.facebook.com/PM-Fast-Trade-104912912155335/
