The Marshall Hilltoppers recently had a class that launched a weather ballon, and recorded the flight with a GoPro camera. The video was uploaded on October 23rd, 2019.  It begins with 6th grade class students holding the balloon on the ground and releasing it. Later you can see a fishbowl camera view of the Twin Ports before it goes above the cloud cover. Then, it soars high into the atmosphere.

I think it's great that Marshall did a hands on project like this with the kids. With the excitement of private space industry and science, it's important to get kids involved in the future. What a great video,  and below you'll also see it coming back down.  Nice job, Marshall!
