Professor Erika Trigoso and her students in "GEOG-1264 Global Environmental Change" class released a weather balloon to gather atmospheric measurements for altitude, temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure data. The equipment included a video camera, a radio signal (emitting location info every minute) plus a GPS unit that is inactive in the stratosphere but emits signals again once the payload enters the troposphere again.
