Short description: The Project Picoballoon is an international project that enables students of all ages to collectively work and develop technologies and methods to research atmospheric behaviour and to learn how to cooperate in a large team. The research itself revolves around the development of ultralight stratospheric probes which can fly for long periods of time whilst collecting and transmitting data. During this short introductory presentation you will learn more about the Project Picoballoon, it’s beginnings, successes, failures but most importantly how to participate.
