A Successful Launch for NASA

On Friday morning last week, after somewhat of a delay in schedule, NASA and more specifically the Colombian Scientific Research Facility launched their giant research balloon from the tarmac here at Wanaka Airport.

A successful launch means the Balloon is now travelling at the desired speed and direction somewhere between New Zealand and the Coast of South America. ┬áThe team experienced magical conditions here close to dawn … and we managed to take a few snaps to share. ┬áRead more about the launch here.
