Experiment on polymerisation in stratosphere.

Last Sunday (25.11.2012) we have sent our cassette with uncured composite in stratosphere.
Konrad Schneider is holding the cassette. We tested the heater of the cassette in air and vacuum (20 Torrs) conditions.

The cassette contained uncured epoxy and polyether compositions with thermo and UV curable compounds.
The cassette was part of payload of stratospheric balloon in Horus project

Filling with helium.

Moving to field.

Balloon and payloads are ready. 

Three boxes of payload and the balloon in Adelaide sky.

Final altitude was about 27 km.
