Contour Flies into Stratosphere

  • Published in News

Contour Australia were proud to sponsor the weather balloon project conducted by Queensland University of Technology's Electrical Engineering Student Society, giving us a peek into space using high-tech weather balloon and a Contour ROAM3 camera.

Electrical engineering students launched the device - with cameras, tracking devices, a Geiger counter and an accelerometer attached - from the cricket grounds on Sunday.

Project leader Deyan Zafirov said he hoped the data gathered would provide a picture of the earth's general environment.

"We are investigating the planet's environment to see if we can notice patterns and how these may relate to other data," he said.
